Does your daughter love science and hands-on experiments?
Having a fun, educational summer is especially important this year. Project Scientist is dedicated to preventing summer learning loss, and the needs are especially great in light of the learning deficits created by COVID-19 in the last year.
Founded by Anoka, Minnesota, native Sandy Marshall, the non-profit known for its one-of-a-kind virtual summer STEM academies for girls has financial aid available for qualifying girls to attend virtual STEM camp this summer. Girls ages four to 12 can experience a camp filled with the magic of science, technology, engineering, and math each weekday from June 21 to July 30 from the comfort of home.
Project Scientist certified teachers will lead girls divided by age in STEM learning and hands-on science. Each girl will receive a weekly STEM kit in the mail with all the supplies to conduct experiments at home.
Weekly themes include:
- Modern Day Building Science & Engineering Design
- Discover STEM Entrepreneurship
- Innovations in Food Production & Delivery
- Exploring Climate Change through a Geographic Information System (GIS)
- Technology & Internet Engineering
- Amazing Brain Science
Campers will also meet female STEM superstars who will introduce them to a variety of STEM careers, and get behind-the-scenes virtual STEM tours of companies and labs all over the country.
Each camp day will run from 9 am-noon CST and will include games, trivia, a mindfulness moment, and movement to get your young scientist energized. Girls will learn with others their age in a curriculum tailored for their grade level. All activities are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards to engage and excite girls in all aspects of STEM.
