Middle School Girls in Science
Connecting middle school girls with female scientists at the Burke Museum
Girls in Science programs offer real-world experiences in STEM to girls who may not otherwise have access to these opportunities. Though all are welcome to apply, Girls in Science strives to serve students who are unfamiliar or struggling with science and curious to explore!
The Middle School Girls in Science program provides a collaborative and supportive environment for girls in grades 6–8 to explore a variety of STEM fields such as oceanography, neuroscience, paleobotany and spectroscopy.
Participants meet one Sunday each month to learn from female scientists at the Burke Museum and the University of Washington. Together, they will examine fossilized plants, learn to measure light, discover how the brain works, and more.
