Discovering the Scientist Within

group of girls gathered in atrium

Discovering the Scientist Within is a free half-day workshop designed to encourage young women to pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers. 

We nurture girls’ interest in the sciences by providing a program of hands-on activities paired with positive adult women STEM role models. The goal of the workshop is to introduce girls to STEM career fields in which women are traditionally under-represented; another is to change the stereotypical perception that scientists are male and that science is ‘difficult’. 


Discovering the Scientist Within for 2016 will be held: Saturday, March 5, 2016!

More information will be posted as it becomes available, but for now - save the date! 



This video made by TERRA Kids was created at our 2012 event.
