Join us Fall 2020 for our next Saturday Workshop!

Join us for a Saturday full of hands-on STEM activities as we explore the wide world of science, technology, engineering, and math! This workshop will explore what we learned in the past decade, and the innovations, discoveries and research that will inform the next. All students in grades 6-8 are welcome. Activities will be led by K-State faculty, staff, and students and will take place between 9am-3:30pm on K-State's campus in Manhattan, KS.

What is the Goal?

The mission of GROW is to increase girls’ interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.
