Welcome

Welcome!

The mission of Girls’ Science Investigations is to motivate, empower, and interest girls in developing the skills they need to pursue careers in science. University students and professors act as mentors and provide a context for exploring and understanding the various disciplines of science through hands-on activities in a laboratory environment. Through student scientific-engagement and parental awareness, Girls’ Science Investigations strives to close the gap in science found between males and females today.

It is a free program for girls in sixth, seventh, and eighth grade who are interested in learning more about science. All sessions run from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm (with lunch and snacks provided to the students) in Sloane Physics Lab, 217 Prospect Street, New Haven, CT 06511.

2017-2018 Sessions

Dates to be announced.


Students will have the opportunity to observe faculty run demonstrations, as well as, participate in hands-on experiments. Please call (203) 432-3600 with any questions or concerns.

                                    Inspiring the girls of today to shape the science of tomorrow.
