Be a part of groundbreaking research happening at the Burke!

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

Over six meetings, 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.

Priority acceptance is granted to applicants seeking to develop self-confidence in their STEM skills, and students with limited access to STEM role models and/or science resources. 

Ages: Grades 9–12

Cost: FREE 

Session Dates: There are no confirmed session dates at this time.

Apply: We are not accepting applications to this program at this time. 

*Applicants are expected to attend all six sessions.
