The Girls of Innovation Science Challenge is for girls, grades 7 & 8, to explore science and it's challenges in a fun, interactive way. The volunteers are drawn from our Connecticut Women of Innovation program and from CTC membership. The mentors are there to talk with the students about their experiences and careers as well as to guide them through the challenges presented by the CT Science Center Staff Scientists. There is no fee for the students to attend, but they must pre-register here and get confirmation from CTC.
