About

SAVE the Date - Volunteer as a Mentor Scientist this summer with Science Club for Girls in our new STEMinista's 6-8th grade summer program in Boston, Cambridge and Lawrence.

Volunteer mentor scientists for our *new* STEMinistas summer program will use team-based design challenges to engage middle school girls in exploring STEM topics from microbiology to computer science to mechanical engineering. Teams working on a challenge over several weekly sessions using the engineering design process design prototypes, build models, and propose solutions. Teams present their final solutions, and the process they used to find that solution, including budgets, material costs, test outcomes and revisions.

Summer Clubs run 4-8 weeks from late June to August.
