Be a part of groundbreaking research happening at the Burke!

Designed for students in grades 9–12, the High School Girls in Science Program helps you gain confidence and hands-on experience through work with distinguished UW scientist mentors.

Each quarter we will take an in-depth look into a Burke collection through behind the scenes tours, studies of anatomical features, morphological comparisons, and scientific illustration, followed by a science-fair style celebration of our work.

Ages: Grades 9–12

Cost: FREE (assistance with bus passes available upon request)

Session Dates: Six Wednesdays in Fall 2020, 4:30–6:30pm

Apply: Applications will open in late
Summer 2020

*Applicants are expected to attend all six sessions. Participants must re-apply for each quarter in which they wish to participate. Space is very limited, so please apply for a later quarter if you are unable to commit to all six sessions. 

Thank You
