Do you like science? Latina Labs is for you

Latinas Leading Tomorrow (LLT) is offering free Latina Labs to middle school girls on June 3, 10, 17, and 24.

Latina Labs is a virtual, STEM-focused program for girls interested in learning more about science. The program focuses on inspiring and exposing girls in grades six through eight to science-focused, hands-on topics, resources, and activities.

In addition, Latina Labs will provide a community space for participants to explore new horizons and meet coaches who become mentors for them. Each session has special guests who share their personal and professional experiences, explain the science topic for that specific session, and give details about the activities students participate in.

Participants learn about important topics in science, such as how to create a symbol, space exploration, how biology, chemistry, and art are used with mealybugs and the importance of photosynthesis.

Each student receives a box containing all the materials needed for practical science sessions and activities.

The application deadline is May 15, 2023 and the application can be found on the website: https://forms.gle/nZ12zGYgBrMLV6nV6
