Eureka! at Girls inc. Sarasota
Eureka! is a 5-year STEM, personal development, and sports program for girls entering 8th grade. In years 1 and 2, girls will participate in 4-week camps on a college campus. Years 3 and 4 include internships with the final year focusing on college and career readiness. Once a month events will also take place during the school year.
This program is highly selective and we are looking for 20 – 25 upcoming 8th graders (in the 2021-22 school year) for our second Eureka! cohort.
Applications will be reviewed and we will interview girls and their parents/guardians to learn about why they want to participate in this program.
