For the past seven years, Boston has celebrated girls in STEM by hosting SET in the City. This program focuses on Science Engineering and Technology and works to get girls excited about STEM by showing them what options are out there for them. The program, sponsored by the Boston Area Girls’ STEM Collaborative, is for girls in grades 9 through 12 and will take place on Saturday, March 28 this year.
The program is a day of career exploration featuring fields in science, engineering, and technology. The day will begin at 9am at Boston University, with kickoff speakers and a science bazaar. Girls will have lunch at Harvard, Emmanuel, Simmons, Northeastern, or Biogen with women currently in science, engineering, and technology, and will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities with professionals working in STEM. Girls will have the chance to learn about cutting-edge research taking place in the field and get advice from professionals and college students regarding pursuing STEM in their futures.
Registration costs $15 and includes breakfast and lunch (reduced registration fees are available). If you know someone who may be interested, they can register here! Space is limited so everyone who is interested must register online prior to the event. More information is available through the Boston Area Girls’ STEM Collaborative.

We provide members with relevant data about the nonprofits in our portfolio and an opportunity to meet directly with our nonprofits’ Executive Directors and senior staff in small settings that promote in-depth q&a’s and, ultimately, informed giving.
