Thank you for your interest in Girls 4 Science. The mission of G4S is to increase science literacy among girls 10-18 through a collaboration of external partnerships. The program is offered on Saturdays every quarter for 6 weeks for free at Olive Harvey, Malcolm X Community Colleges and University of St. Francis from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. We fulfill our mission in several ways that have proven successful in retaining girls' interest in STEM subjects:
• Science Exploration in small groups to conduct experiments and study, which fosters self-confidence and collegial networks.
• Field Trips to museums, zoos, businesses, nature preserves and other sites to augment and go beyond laboratory assignments.
• Mentorships to introduce girls to women pioneers in science and technology, as well as to professionals and college students who can offer guidance and a friendly ear.
• Scholarships to 12th graders who have completed at least 2 years of continuous enrollment in the G4S program and seek to apply for undergraduate study in science, technology, engineering or math.

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.
