Eureka! Research Fair

Girls Inc of Worcester plans to offer an 8-session program for 20 high-school girls enrolled in Eureka  ̶   a 5-year program that involves at-risk girls in planned activities and education that increases their opportunity for success in STEM education and careers.   This program will take place from November 2016 through February 2017, and will complement and enhance the Eureka curriculum.  Each year, girls participate in Eureka for 4 weeks during the summer (160 hours) followed by monthly meetings and workshops during the school year (30 hours).  The program helps participants see themselves as an important part of the future workforce by providing an intensive, educational 4-week summer program and guided opportunities for increased knowledge and skill-building during the school year.
