Girls Inc. Eureka! is a STEM-based approach to engaging and empowering 8th – 12th grade youth to see themselves as an important part of the workforce of the future. During the Eureka! program, youth participate in a variety of exciting and compelling activities that explore STEM — nano sciences, robotics, DNA research, forensic science — through hands-on experiences in a college campus environment. With complimentary activities in sports and physical fitness, healthy living, and financial literacy, Eureka! fully fosters educational, professional, and personal development.
Throughout the year, Girls Inc. PNW hosts several events to celebrate our programs, bring light to current issues, and raise support for our important work. These events would not be possible without the generous support from our community.
