Girls in STEM



Fall 2021 Girls in STEM Workshops are now on sale!

Join us for workshops designed for young ladies in 4-8 grade, who will participate in activities that connect with real-world applications of STEM through design, programming, coding, engineering, and more. All workshops are held in the newly renovated STEM Labs at Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts. Tickets are just $5 per girl, per workshop!  

Please note, for Girls in STEM workshops held at Whitaker Center - Science Center exploration before or after your workshop is NOT included in the price of your workshop.  Science Center tickets can be purchased at the Box Office the day of your workshop if the science center is open to the public.  

Given new CDC guidelines Whitaker Center is requiring all individuals grade 12 and under wear a mask during their time at Whitaker Center.  Those older than 12th grade are highly encouraged to wear a mask as the majority of Whitaker Center patrons are not yet eligible to receive a vaccination against Covid-19. 

Any questions or concerns can be directed to education@whitakercenter.org.
