Girls in Science: Future Focus is an afterschool program focused on engaging middle school girls in exploring careers in science with like-minded peers. Each week, girls will meet a woman in science or other STEM profession, hear her story and engage in fun, hands-on activities related to her career.
Running in fall, 2020 in a new virtual format, Future Focus is an intensive, eight-week program for students who have shown ability and strong interest in the sciences, especially the natural sciences. The Girls in Science mission is to engage girls in hands-on science experiences, connect participants to inspiring women in science and to create a safe atmosphere where diversity can be celebrated and students’ natural curiosity can flourish.
