Green Girls in STEM Program Now Accepting Applications for 2020-21 Program

Are you a high school girl looking for experiences to help you figure out what career or education path you will enjoy? Are you fascinated by how things work (in nature or of human design)? Are you interested in learning about environmental issues and how you can make a difference?

Join us for programming to explore careers, technologies and design processes related to environmental challenges our region is facing. A group of up to 25 young women from across the region will be chosen to participate in the Green Girls in STEM program for the 2020-21 school year.

 

 

Throughout the year-long program, participants will be engaged by:

  • Ongoing contact from the Project Manager, for both personal encouragement and to aid in finding opportunities to share the information learned with participants’ larger school communities.
  • Ongoing contact with a female mentor(s) in a STEM related career.
  • Participation in “lunch and learn” sessions throughout the year. *Note – these will be in a virtual format for the time being

Who should apply: Young women in grades 9-12 for the 2020-21 school year. Applicants should be creative thinkers and willing to work collaboratively with others. No experience is necessary, just an interest in STEM, the environment, and leadership development.

Dates: While we normally hold a summer camp the first week of June, we have to cancel our in-person format this year due to COVID-19. In lieu of an in-person camp, we will be holding a variety of engaging sessions virtually throughout the summer and school year. These will be scheduled on an ongoing basis based on availability of group participants. We hope to meet for some in-person nature exploration programs later in the summer and school year using safe social distancing practices. These sessions will be scheduled as state regulations are updated.

Cost: Due to COVID-19, the program fee will be waived this year

To apply: Please complete a short application using our online form. A permission form must also be submitted and can be found here.
