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.

Applications for the fall 2019 session on Paleobotany (ancient plants) will open Saturday, 9/14.

Ages: Grades 9–12

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

Session Dates: 4:30-6:30pm on 10/23, 10/30, 11/6, 11/13, 11/20, 12/4

*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.
