Become a STEMinista –
Join the Cohort!

In 2021, the Michigan Science Center welcomed the first STEMinista Statewide Cohort, providing 6th – 8th girls from throughout the state of Michigan an opportunity to further their interest in STEM fields. During our virtual sessions, the cohort explored STEM careers through workshops and panels, where they met current STEM role models. With the help of their STEMinista Role Model mentor, participants developed and presented their own virtual STEM Show. Most importantly, our STEMinistas got to connect with each other, making new friends across the state and bonding over shared interests and experiences.

We are excited to announce our second STEMinista Statewide Cohort. This virtual program will run from January 2023 into June 2023. Throughout the program, STEMinistas will explore STEM careers, practice their virtual presentation skills, and work with their STEMinista Mentor to create their STEM Show. Near the end of the program, STEMinistas and their families will be invited to attend the STEMinista Spring Celebration, an in-person event at the Michigan Science Center that celebrates them becoming a STEMinista Ambassador!
