The Girls Inc. Eureka! program is an intensive, five-year STEM based program for rising 8th grade girls that builds girls’ confidence and skills through hands-on opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Utilizing a whole girl approach, the program also incorporates sports and physical fitness, personal development, and college and career readiness. Eureka! broadens girls’ future academic and career interests, encourages enrollment in advanced math and science courses, promotes positive risk-taking, and assists girls in developing networks of peers and mentors to support their future endeavors.

During Eureka! girls gain first-hand knowledge through a variety of exciting and compelling activities that explore the cutting edge world of STEM through experiences in a college campus environment. With complementary activities in healthy living, social justice and financial literacy, Eureka’s approach fosters educational, professional and personal development.

EUREKA! PARTICIPANTS WILL:
  • Participate in a 4-week summer camp at Drexel University
  • Participate in exciting field trips
  • Participate in swimming instruction, sports, and more personal development activities with Penn Athletics
  • Attend monthly meetings during the school year
