What is Eureka!?

 

Eureka! is a 5 year comprehensive program designed to inspire girls ages 12 to 18 to pursue their academic and career interests, especially in Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) related fields.

Girls enter the program the summer before their eighth grade year and continue through their high school graduation. 

The Eureka! Program is designed to meet the intellectual, social, physical and emotional needs of adolescent girls through a combination of engaging STEM, sports, personal and career development activities.

Testimonials

I was very shy and didn’t speak to anyone or interact with others much. I love to read, have natural hair, have been called weird. I came to Girls Inc. and because I was accepted the way I am, I came out of my shell. I tried new things, I have found my voice. - Rahni
