2022 Girls’ Science Adventures

Astronomy: Saturday, February 5th
9:00 am – Noon

Location: Eugene Science Center

Travel the stars at Eugene Science Center! Delve into the realm of Astrophysics with hands-on activities, and a guided tour of the skies with Planetarium Manager Peter Kukla in ESC’s state-of-the-art Planetarium!

Zoology: Saturday, February 12th
9:00 am – Noon

Location: Eugene Science Center
Girl Examining Pond Water

Girls will dive into the ocean to discover seadragons, seahorses, and pipefish. These are not your traditional fish – they have extremely long faces, plates covering their bodies, and their fathers carry babies in pouches! By re-creating and testing out their unique features, you will uncover the benefits of their unique body shape and the dad’s pouch!

Ornithology: Saturday, February 19th
9:00 am – Noon

Location: Eugene Science Center
Special Guest: Cascades Raptor Center
Woman in Mask Holds Raptor

Ecology is the study of living organisms and their relationship to their surrounding environment. On this day, girls will take to the sky to learn about the raptors that call Oregon home, and learn about the lives of local owls and their habitat, including a real owl pellet dissection. Can you figure out what these birds had for lunch? Featuring a visit from the Cascades Raptor Center and their winged friend!

Biology: Saturday, February 26th
9:00 am – Noon

Location: University of Oregon
Woman in Facemask Looks Through Microscope

On this day, girls will come to the University of Oregon to learn about microscopes and model organisms that are used in the laboratory to help scientists understand different biological processes. Using real microscopes, you will get to look closely at flies, nematodes, and more! Will you be able tell which organisms have been genetically modified?

Mathematics: Saturday, March 5th
9:00 am – Noon

Location: Eugene Science Center
Girl in Mask Does Math on Whiteboard

On this day, girls will have a chance to explore math in a variety of hands-on ways, from learning about strange surfaces with balloons and paper-cutting to learning “mathemagic” tricks with which they can impress their friends and family!

Forensics: Saturday, March 12th
9:00 am – Noon

Location: Eugene Science Center
Girl in Mask Looks Through Magnifying Glass

On this day, girls will put on their lab coats and detective hats to solve a mystery. Forensic science is the application of different scientific fields to examine evidence of a crime and adventurers will get to use chromatography, fingerprint analysis, and more to work out the mystery as a team.

FOR GIRLS IN GRADES 4 – 6

Six Saturdays This Winter!

9 a.m. – Noon

We love engaging girls in STEM! Girls get pumped up about science during our series of Saturday workshops. Girls explore hands-on science with expert role models from University of Oregon’s Women in Graduate Science and other female mentors. Workshops take place at Eugene Science Center, University of Oregon, or at a special field trip location.
