Do you know a middle school-aged girl whose motto is reduce, reuse, recycle? Then she will love this fall’s Girls in Science workshop all about green science!

From what we eat to what we wear, girls will explore how daily decisions can contribute to extreme heat and weather events. They will leverage design, engineering, and natural landscapes to make our communities resilient to changes in our climate, and leave full of inspiration and with actionable steps for becoming more resilient today.

The Girls in Science experience at the Science Museum includes:

  • An hour-long workshop with all materials provided
  • A take-home activity and project
  • An eco-friendly tote bag
  • Access to Science Museum exhibits
  • Access to the gift shop

Workshop times:

  • Workshop times are available at 1-2 p.m, 2:30 - 3:30 p.m, or 4-5 p.m.
  • Girls are invited to explore the Museum before or after their workshop time.
  • Please note that the Museum closes at 5 p.m., so if you select the 4-5 p.m. workshop, you'll want to do your exploring before!
