Seventh grade is a critical point where decisions are made in terms of high school course sequences, dual enrollment, advanced placement courses, and out of school activities that will open doors to future opportunities. The GO-GIRL winter program was designed in an effort to keep girls interested in STEM fields and help build a capacity for future success.
The winter program has become the entry point for a suite of activities that support girls throughout middle and high school. GO-GIRL provides girls with an opportunity to explore STEM fields in greater depth with undergraduate mentors and STEM faculty. In addition to hands-on STEM experiences girls will learn about what they can do to prepare for success in high school and college.
The 7th grade program introduces girls to the development process of mobile apps for iOS and Android platforms, girls work in teams to research STEM fields and take on the jobs of developers and create an app that captures what they have learned. After completing the winter program, GO-GIRLs are invited to participate in summer academies, and other Keeping in Touch with STEM activities.
If your daughter is interested in being a part of our winter program, applications are available starting in the fall and can be filled out online. If you have any other questions regarding the GO-GIRL winter program please feel free to email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
