What We Do

The mission of Project Scientist is to educate, coach and advocate for girls and women who have a passion, aptitude and talent for STEM. Our core programs include Project Scientist Academy, a 6-week summer science intensive for 4-12 year olds held on a university campus and Project Scientist Expeditions, year-round full-day STEM Expeditions for girls when school is closed. Based on existing research of what inspires, motivates, and builds confidence for girls in STEM, our programs and endeavors allow us to engage and empower girls.

Interesting Info

A 2014 Harvard research study of Project Scientist showed girls gained a significant increase in science career interest & knowledge after a summer with PS.
In just two years, PS went from serving 94 girls to 700!
In summer 2015 we served girls on three university campuses in Charlotte and Caltech in California!
