Deadline Extended! NCMNS Girls in Science Applications Due December 9

Deadline extended! Please help us spread the word to all eligible middle school students!


The NC Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh, NC is currently accepting applications for our 2020 Girls in Science: Future Focus program.


This program will meet weekly from January-March and is open to current 6th and 7th grade girls. Each week for ten weeks, participants will come to the Museum to meet a different woman in science, hear her story and engage in fun hands-on activities and exciting behind-the-scenes experiences related to her field of work. Scholarships are available!


Online applications include a student form, parent form and two recommendations. Applications will be due by 5 p.m. Monday, December 9th. More information and application links can be found here:


Please help us spread the word to Triangle families, school faculty, homeschool groups, scout troops and others who may be interested in this opportunity!


If you are a woman in science or know someone who would be interested in joining us as a guest presenter for one of our meetings, please contact Erin Apple at


Thank you!
