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 University of Oregon or Eugene Science Center. Click on a workshop below to learn more.
How do our eyes understand colors? How can we use light to see things that we normally can’t? How does a dog or cat see the world? See some of the tiniest animals on the planet with your own eyes using paper microscopes!
Learn how earthquakes and other natural disasters happen and put your engineering skills to the test! This workshop includes a visit to the Museum of Natural & Cultural History’s “Survival Architecture and the Art of Resilience” exhibit and an architecture design workshop for natural disasters.
How do robots know where to go and what to do? We will learn basic coding skills and teach our fleet of Cozmo robots to complete tasks with help from the Eugene Coding Initiative.
The brain is what makes you who you are! We will learn about how scientists study the brain to understand how it grows and helps us learn, and find out what our brains have in common with other animals.
Join the search for life beyond Earth! Learn about how scientists search for planets outside our solar system and determine if they could support life. Enjoy a customized planetarium experience with our Exoplanet Expert planetarium director Haley Sharp.
Explore the chemistry of color! How can chemicals help us determine the properties of different materials? How do we dye things to be a new color? Prepare to get messy during our final science adventure!
