Other Opportunities

CanTEEN Girl has a lot to offer, but we know there are more things out there to do! Most opportunities will be girls only, but we will post some co-ed opportunities as well. Look out for “*co-ed” in the description. The STEMisphere also has a searchable site for great STEM programs for kids (Pre-K through Grade 12). Most camps and events are local to our Southwestern PA region, but we encourage you to go beyond! If you know of something that isn’t on our list, please tell us! Email Holly at FritzH@carnegiesciencecenter.org.

Girls Bridging Communities is a summer program that focuses on mentoring girls (3rd-5th grade) and building a strong foundation in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM!)
