Our mission is to increase the self-confidence and science literacy of K12th grade girls belonging to groups that are underrepresented in the sciences, through free, after school programs that provide experiential learning, mentorship, and leadership opportunities. Girls work with mentor-scientists from Northeastern who model and foster leadership, affirm college as an expectation, and promote careers in science and technology as goals and options.
Our hope is that the Northeastern chapter will bring together a community of women in science , who are committed to dedicating themselves to a certain group of girls for one or two or three years, following them through the grades, rather than for only a single semester at a time. Members of this chapter will gain experience in teaching and will have the satisfaction of knowing they have made a difference in the lives of these girls.
