An inspiring monthly program dedicated for girls and nonbinary students in 5th-8th grade. The program includes an inspiring one-day conference for 100-150 girls usually on a Saturday, augmented by monthly in-depth workshops and camps led by professional women in STEM. The girls experience new STEM hands-on activities in small groups and engage in a friendly, safe environment to make long-lasting friendships.
Due to our funding restrictions, priority is given to students in Northern New Mexico in the following counties: Santa Fe, Taos, San Miguel, Mora, Sandoval, Rio Arriba, and Los Alamos.
At the annual day-long conference about 150 girls in 5th-8th grade get to attend a keynote address, hands-on workshops in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) led by women professionals, and a STEAM and College Fair. The girls get a chance to meet STEM role models, like-minded peers, and expand their knowledge of what STEM careers are all about.
Registration for the 2023 conference happening on November 4th will start on September 24th.
You can also register for our monthly workshops as they become available. See below fro more details
An inspiring monthly program dedicated for girls in 5th-8th grade from the seven counties and pueblos of Northern New Mexico. The program kicks off with an inspiring one-day conference for 200 girls usually on a Saturday in October/November. The conference is followed by 6 monthly in-depth workshops led by women in STEM.
In the "Polymer Play" workshop, young scientists will embark on a hands-on journey into the universe of polymers. They will create their very own batch of colorful slime, exploring the transformative process from liquid to semi-solid, all while understanding the scientific principles behind it.
As they mix and mold, they will discover:
- The concept of polymers and their many parts.
- How different ingredients can react to form new substances.
- The dual nature of slime as both a solid and a liquid.
- Comparisons between various materials, including everyday items like chocolate, to understand the properties of substances.
Through this engaging activity, the participants will not only craft their personalized slime but also develop a foundational understanding of polymers, which are present all around us in various forms, from plastics to natural fibers.
In this workshop, we will be hands-on with the George Mason University “Flappy” robot to investigate lighter-than-air vehicles.
Together we will make connections to the bio-inspiration behind the design, review physics concepts around flight, learn about the robot’s mechatronic system, and experiment with our own designs.
An all expense paid field trip to Explora's newest teen center, X Studio!
Students will participate in a hands-on workshop and a scavenger hunt throughout the exhibits. A pizza lunch is included!
Come join us for a bit of mad science. We'll be getting DNA out of strawberries, making DNA bracelets, solving a mystery using DNA, and making dry ice bubbles!

An unidentified scientist was found dead in an office building in Los Alamos. The only suspects are other scientists who are working on the Manhattan Project in the same building. You and your team of forensic scientists will examine and analyze the evidence from the crime scene. Look at motives, compare evidence found on the suspects and help detectives solve the case!
Come and learn about real world space missions by designing and flying your own balloon rockets. Manage the weight of your payload and the drag of friction against the propulsive energy of your balloons. In this workshop, you will learn principles of rocket physics, including forces of gravity and friction, Newton’s Laws of Motion, propulsion, and how engineersbalance all of these to create and prototype designs.
