Science Splash

Grades 6-12

Girls tend to lose interest in science and technology during middle school. For three-years, ETV coordinated a pilot project called TECH TEAM. To conclude this three year project, ETV partnered with the National Science Foundation, the Girl Scouts of America, and community schools and groups, to host an all-day science festival that stimulated and encouraged middle school girls' interest in science, technology, engineering and math careers. The 2005 Science Splash was a girl's odyssey of hands-on science and math activities, speakers, shows and exhibits—all designed to educate, inspire, stimulate and entertain middle school girls ages 10-14.
