Project Scientist Launches Virtual After-School STEM Club For Girls

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Project Scientist says they are launching a virtual after-school STEM club for girls ages 4 to 12-years-old with scholarships available to those in need starting October 14th.

Every Wednesday afternoon Project Scientist certified teachers will lead girls in STEM learning and hands-on science experiments, and provide them with at-home kits to conduct experiments, according to a news release.

Club officials say their STEM program is designed to give girls interested in science, technology, math, and engineering hands-on learning to build their confidence in pursuing STEM careers in the future since many schools have canceled in-person classes.

The Project Scientist STEM club costs $250 for two months and anyone can register by September 30th here.

Project Scientist officials say financial aid is available for girls who receive free or reduced-price lunches at school, and they anticipate up to 50 percent of students will be on scholarship.

Each week the club will explore different themes including what it takes to propel objects from point A to point B through the science of elastic energy, and discovering how sound works by building your own musical instruments, according to a news release.

The new virtual STEM club builds upon Project Scientist’s successful virtual summer camps in 2020, that brought over 600 girls from across the United States, according to a news release.

“They were able to interact and teach these girls in a completely virtual environment,” said one dad in a review. “They made it so the girls were really able to ask questions and feel involved.”

Club officials say sponsors have made Project Scientist possible, and they are dedicated to helping change world views of who is a scientist and what a scientist does.
