Girls Summit

A- A A+

Girls’ Summit is a hands-on career exploration day that introduces students in grades 5th to 10th to non-traditional fields in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math (S.T.E.A.M.).

The event is held at SUNY ESF and includes a keynote address, a series of workshops, and panel discussions comprised of students from local colleges and high schools.

Participants will rotate through 4 of 8 workshops on the ESF campus from 10:35am and 2:35pm, with a lunch break. Each workshop will run for approximately 45 minutes and will include hands-on activities to engage the students.

The mission of Girls’ Summit is to empower, motivate, educate, and change the perception of girls and women in S.T.E.A.M. The program is open to everyone, regardless of their sex, gender, or gender identity. Past workshop topics have included paper-making and testing, building watershed models, constructing wind turbines, heartbeat regulation, Science for Health and Life, coding, Scratch software, and fermentation. Our primary goal is to empower youth with the confidence, knowledge, and role models essential for making educational and life decisions consistent with personal goals of economic independence, self-sufficiency, and equality.
