Girls 4 Science Mission
G4S accomplishes its mission by offering free six-week Saturday Science Academy courses at one of Chicago's City Colleges. To date more than 300 girls have participated in G4S programs. G4S believes in the following principles related to science education:
Membership - The lack of money will not hinder the study of science for participants.
Science Exploration - Participants will have the opportunity to learn collectively with each other in a non-competitive environment.
Mentorships - The girls will be exposed to women pioneers in science and technology.
Field Trips - The girls will expand their study outside of the lab with themed field trips.
Scholarships - Participants will have the opportunity to apply for college scholarships to further their study at a 2 or 4-year college.
As a Mom in Chicago, you really have to supplement education. I’ve always felt that Chicago gives a nice foundation; but It’s up to the parents to really hone in and expose the children to different careers, so that it broadens their horizons... It actually gives them hands-on experience to realize careers that are outside the box that they normally wouldn’t know of... I appreciate that about Girls 4 Science. It opens up their eyes at this very crucial stage. My daughter is going into the 6th grade.
