Workshop Leaders

Workshop leader applications are now Open!

The workshop leaders we seek are women in STEM from the Chicago area who can inspire and encourage middle-school girls through hands-on activities. Workshops are typically conducted by 2-3 people and while the primary workshop leader should be a woman, people of all genders are welcome to help conduct the workshop. You can read about past workshops and FAQ. Workshop applications are now closed. Any questions or concerns can be sent to

For a more in depth idea of how the workshops are structured, check out these examples of previous Workshop Descriptions.

Please note that the 2022 conference will be held virtually to ensure the safety of all our attendees, workshop leaders, and volunteers.

Unsure how to lead a virtual workshop? See EYH Cornellthe NIH, or 100StemIdeas for ideas for at-home activities.  It may seem daunting at first to think about how to adapt a lesson to a virtual format, but remember: the goal is simply to get the girls feeling excited and empowered about their ability to pursue a career in STEM!
