STEM Summer Program for Girls

GALS is a free summer science program for high school students from North Carolina who identify as female or gender nonconforming, students of color, students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, and other groups underrepresented in fields of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). The successful applicants spend two weeks in the Pisgah National Forest learning science hands-on with Duke University scientists. Applicants with little to no experience in learning science outside the classroom or in exploring the outdoors are being sought.  Academic performance is not taken into account when selecting girls. They are looking for those who would succeed in this hands-on, experiential learning environment. 

See the website below, Ms. O'Kane, or the "Opportunities" Bulletin board for additional information. 

 Applications close March 15
