interactive science community workshops
We host workshops in the local San Francisco Bay Area community for youth to engage in hands on, fun science experiments. All of our experiments have been designed for ages 6 and up and are safe to re-create at home. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to host a NexGeneGirls Science Workshop at your school or community organization.
In collaboration with the California Life Sciences Institute Nexgenegirls will produced a spring science bootcamp for six High School students.
The selected NexGeneGirls Bootcamp participants participated in a 6-week, 3-day (12-15 hour) per week internship in June where they were able to work on collaborative scientific research projects and hone their hands-on scientific technique under the direction of an academic scientist.
This yearly internship has been designed to immerse high school girls in scientific research. NexGeneGirls grants six internships to qualifying San Francisco high school girls of color. These students participate in an eight week summer Science Academy program.
