For 3rd - 6th Grade Girls

This program meets four times per semester on the Colorado School of Mines campus. It introduces girls to a variety of STEM subjects through fun, hands-on activities that change each semester so you'll learn something different each time. For Fall 2022, we'll be offering both in-person and virtual sessions. See details below. (NOTE: We will be adhering to state guidelines and School of Mines guidelines regarding safety and the coronavirus.)
