Girls Day: Express Yourself with Science

October 2, 2021

Please note: This Girls Day will be hosted by the MIT List Visual Arts Center, located at 20 Ames Street, Cambridge.

Girls Day, offered twice a year, celebrates women who are exploring, researching, and innovating in fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Meet amazing women in these fields while doing fun hands-on activities. This family-friendly event is recommended for girls 10 and up, but all are welcome.

Our theme this time is “Express Yourself with Science” and will highlight women whose work combines science and the arts.

Admission is free.
