Local Clubs

Local Clubs (aka Chapters)

A once-a-month adventure in your city!

Chapter members, aged 7-16, go on monthly adventures to explore STEM with fun, hands-on activities led by real experts. These events often occur at the workplaces of our STEM experts, giving girls and gender diverse youth a behind-the-scenes view of a variety of STEM fields, allowing them to experience the lab and field environment for themselves.


Chapter members receive an email 2 weeks in advance, providing the topic, date, time, and location of the next event. Most events are 1.5 to 2 hours long and occur on weekends or, occasionally, on weeknights.
