Eureka!

Eureka! scholars participate in a 5-year science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) based program that begins with a 4-week summer camp for rising 8th grade girls. Eureka! builds girls’ confidence and skills through hands-on programs featuring STEM. Eureka! fosters personal development and college and career readiness, promotes lasting relationships with peers and mentors, and encourages positive risk-taking. This program inspires educational, professional, and personal growth.
