MEGS: Magnificently Empowering Girls in Science

Comming Summer 2018

It is often heard that there is a "leaky pipeline" for girls in the sciences. Girls want to make a difference, so give them hands-on, real-world problems to explore? 

MEGS is designed to create a foundation for girls in 4th - 6th grade through minds-on & hands-on encounters in science, engineering & mathematics supported by personal, academic, & professional pathways. The support system for these young girls includes integrated engagement, learning about scientific habits of mind, &  problem solving. This growth & support will be intertwined with leadership, communication, & team building activities to strengthen the full development of these young girls.
