GIRLS & SCIENCE officially kicks off Friday, March 3, 2023 from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science; and, the program runs through March 31, 2023.
Girls & Science is back with a free, in-person event on March 3 to kick-off a month of virtual programming and engagement. Connect with women mentors in STEAM careers to ask questions, get inspired, and explore the many diverse opportunities a future career in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math can bring!
The ninth annual Girls & Science event is hosted by the Museum, CBS Colorado, and Girls Inc. of Metro Denver.
Girls INC === ThINC Outside the Box ‘kit’===
As part of the month of activities, families can order a special Girls thINC Outside the Box that contains rich literature and immersive, hands-on activities to help girls tap into their inner strengths and explore new concepts. Inside the box girls will find a Girls Inc of Metro Denver 32-page magazine filled with over five hours of research-based content, all the supplies needed to explore the magazine’s activities, a new book featuring BIPOC female characters, and authors, and several GIRLS & SCIENCE surprise items.
While the Girls thINC Outside the Box kits are most age-appropriate for girls ages 6-10 years old, many 11-12 year olds still enjoy the boxes. Boxes cost just $35 and as with all Girls Inc. of Metro Denver programs, the GIRLS thINC Outside the Box kit is offered on a sliding scale, and no girl will be turned away due to an inability to pay.
