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.

High school Girls in Science will reconvene in the spring to study Ichthyology (the study of fish). Applications will open in early April.

Ages: Grades 9–12

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

Session Dates: 4:30-6:30pm on 4/29, 5/6, 5/13, 5/20, 5/27 and 6/3

Apply: Applications will open in April 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
