Girlstart Club at Hicks

Girlstart is an after school  weekly program that introduces important STEM concepts in a hands-on and fun environment.

"Girlstart After School is a free, weekly program in the fall and spring semesters that encourages young women to be “brave, creative, and curious.” Girlstart After School seeks to enhance and supplement girls’ science learning in the classroom through engaging activities that introduce important STEM concepts in a hands-on and informal environment. Girlstart After School is particularly impactful for girls because of the length, consistency, and rigor of the program. All lessons are aligned to Texas’s learning standards as well as NGSS, and Girlstart’s STEM CREW staffing model ensures that participants receive instruction and mentorship from talented, dedicated educators and role models."
