Summer Stock | SciGirls in Chicago

The Museum of Science and Industry, in collaboration with the SciGirls en Español program, launched an outreach initiative called “Brilla La Ciencia” this summer. A group of Latina teenagers from the Museum’s Science Minors teen volunteer program led science workshops for youth participants at five community organizations.

The teenage SciGirls (Antonia, Amelia, Beth, Noemi, and Tere), accompanied and supervised by a college intern, traveled all around the city of Chicago visiting organizations and schools in predominantly Hispanic neighborhoods. The students were excited to learn that the teenagers came from similar communities and that they spoke Spanish. They were not afraid to ask lots of questions about high school, working at the museum, and life as a teenager. As for the SciGirls, they really enjoyed being role models and teachers!
