The Girls Science Club is a project of Boston University‘s Graduate Women in Science and Engineering group. In coordination with the West End House Boys and Girls Club, we plan fun, hands on activities for the girls that convey scientific concepts. Our goal is to help encourage more girls, starting at a young age, to gain an understanding of these concepts and get excited about science and engineering. Our volunteers strive to be positive mentors and STEM role models for our club members, mostly girls in the elementary-school age group. By hosting fun activities and sharing our love for science, we can connect these girls to STEM in a positive manner, and hopefully inspire these girls to consider careers in STEM fields.
Date: Every Tuesday from 5:00 – 6:00 pm. Volunteers meet at 4:45.
Location: 105 Allston St, Allston MA, 02134

The initial concept for the club was developed a few years ago by a GWISE member who worked with the Science Girls Club organization that runs many similar clubs throughout the greater Boston area. Inspired by this idea, GWISE started their own club through our partnership with the West End House (WEH). We have now been teaching elementary-school age girls about scientific concepts for years.
