What is Eureka!?
Eureka! scholars participate in a five-year science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) focused program that begins with a 4-week camp the summer before 8th grade. Eureka! builds girls' confidence and skills through hands-on programs featuring STEM activities. Eureka! fosters personal development and college and career readiness, promotes lasting relationships with peers and mentors, and encourages positive risk-taking. Within a cohort of 30 peers, Eurekans will be inspired to pursue educational, professional and personal growth.

Eureka! starts the summer before 8th grade and continues until students graduate from high school. Students commit to 4-weeks of Eureka! activities each summer and 12 meetings throughout the school year.
