Girls on the Rise

Girls on the Rise is a half-day conference designed for middle school girls to further inspire their interest in STEM. Participants engage with a variety of hands-on science activities. Each activity station is set up like an experiment, where girls hypothesize outcomes, test their theories, collect results, and make conclusions as to what scientific principals are at hand. The goals of this event are to encourage young ladies to get involved in STEM, provide an opportunity to speak to women pursing and engineering or applied mathematics degrees, foster curiosity for science, and show how fun science can be!

Girls on the Rise prepares participants to:

  • Communicate knowledge of the scientific process and design processes
  • Demonstrate interpersonal skills needed for solving problems individually and in teams
  • Define STEM fields and identify applicable careers paths

“Middle school is the time when girls start to shape an idea of their futures. Because of this, it is a critical time to encourage their interest in STEM careers. This event gives us a way to show middle school girls all the exciting possibilities STEM holds for them!”

“Girls on the Rise was really fun because we got to expand on all of our interests. We didn’t learn about just one type of science, but we got to do chemistry, mechanical engineering, mining engineering, and so much more. I liked that we got to do hands on activities and try to do the experiments by ourselves, getting help only if we needed it. I learned a lot in some different areas, such as how to make a flashlight out of a watch battery, and the different chemical reactions that happen with hydrophobic and hydrophilic molecules. I thought the whole event was really cool!”
