Project Title After School Program MPM

Project Description The After School program at the museum is geared towards 6th, 7th, & 8th grade girls to get them interested and excited about science. They have learned entomolgy & geology in 6th grade, and are now focusing on Ecology. The girls in our program are a mix of ethnicity, with some being a bit more tough then others, though they all seem to come together when they are learning together in an environment where 'teaching' is more just about having fun learning.
