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 (6-8th grade) in exploring STEM topics. This summer's topic is Biomimicry! Participants will observe nature and collect samples to identify natural adaptations and systems. Participants will chose one adaptation and design and create a product for human use that will solve a societal issue.

Summer Clubs run from late June to August. Pick a program that works for you!
