We believe girls can enjoy science, technology, engineering and math. So, we design all our science conferences, summer camps and robotics programs to be interesting and fun.
Reaching girls at an early age before they start making assumptions about what they are ‘good at’ is an important strategy. Otherwise, girls can become discouraged and science becomes “uncool” to them. That’s why our K-12 curricula have a special emphasis on elementary and middle school grades.
With Amazing Girls Science, girls get to try many different STEM experiences without judgment or grading. So, they can explore and discover what they are or are not good at.
Amazing Girls Science environments encourage creativity and curiosity. Our teachers radiate enthusiasm while they create learning experiences that inspire girls to think like scientists.
The Amazing Girls Science Conferences provides 4th through 8th grade girls with an opportunity to get excited about science, engineering, technology and math! At this annual conferences students participate in hands-on scientific workshops, interact with role models, listen to a variety of professionals speak about a typical day on their job. The conference is always inspirational, fun and engaging!
Introduces younger girls to real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface
The Mother-Daughter Engineering Event is an awesome hands on event where 3rd-7th grade girls can work with their mothers or mentors to solve engineering challenges, get mothers engaged, and equip them with the tools to keep the interest and conversation going at home.
Technovation is a global program just for girls that teaches app development and entrepreneurship. High School girls work in teams of up to five girls, with a coach and a mentor, to build mobile apps that solve problems in their local community.
Camp Invention® K-5 is a nationally acclaimed summer program where STEM concepts come to life. Led by local teachers, this program has tapped into kids' natural curiosity since 1990, giving them the opportunity to become innovators through teamwork and immersive, hands-on creative problem-solving.
Robotics Summer camp for girls 6-9
Student will learn the basic concepts of Computer Science with drag and drop programming.
Build a Mobile App gives students the skills needed to create any app they can imagine and publish it the App Stores. They will learn how to program mobile apps using MIT’s App Inventor.
Build a Game From Scratch: Create your own interactive stories, animated adventures and creative comics. Learn drag-and-drop programming basics with Scratch (a project of the MIT Media Lab).
Dr. Barnett and her role in the Amazing Girls Science program have played an integral role in shaping my passion for STEM fields. As a young child, there was never much female representation in science camps or classes I attended. Even then, I could feel the gender bias against me, and that alienated me from my male counterparts. With Dr. Barnett's help, my confidence in my ability to be just as good as any boy grew exponentially, and was a great foundation in exploring other areas of engineering. I plan to pursue an engineering major in college, and aspire to be the beacon of encouragement and hope for young girls that Dr. Barnett was for me."
“The Mother and Daughter Engineering Fest was wonderful. My girls and I learned allot and enjoyed the time together at the Maritime Aquarium. The behind the scenes tour was a big hit and the girls really enjoyed meeting the scuba divers at the shark tank and were talking about it all evening on Saturday and Sunday."
