What is Girls and Women in Science?

Girls and Women in Science is a minds-on, hands-on science workshop weekend for sixth grade girls, along with their teachers and parents. This award winning conference encourages the exploration of science and mathematics by middle school girls through two days of experiments, activities, and interaction with science professionals. The girls, teachers, and parents will work with Beloit College faculty, students, and alumnae. The entire weekend is designed to build confidence in the girls who attend by providing them with academic opportunities and encouragement from undergraduate female scientists.

When does it occur?

Girls and Women in Science occurs in spring of each year, usually in April. This year, it will occur from 3:30 pm April 12th - 4:45 pm April 13th, 2019. 

Who can participate?

Girls and Women in Science is open to teams consisting of a 6th grade science teacher with one female student and her parent. However, girls are still eligible to apply if either their parent and/or teacher is unable to attend. Teachers who wish to bring additional students should contact Girls and Women in Science.

How much does it cost?

There is no participation fees. The weekend is supported by Beloit College. Girls will be hosted overnight at the college on Friday; parents and teachers will need to arrange their own accommodations for that night.

Please contact for any questions.
