In the spaces between school closures, summer learning loss, and online experiences, Brite debuted in the summer of 2020 to step into the gaps for middle and high school girls that result in a vacuum for women in science. This new summer experience was created in partnership with the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP), the World Science Festival and The Hello Studios in a first-of-its-kind collaboration.

Throughout the month of July, girls ages 13-16 had the opportunity to join summer camps featuring the Brite curriculum and a series of inspiring female scientists and science advocates.  

Join us to learn more about the successes and challenges of Brite from some of the creators, educators, and evaluators involved. The presenters will share lessons learned and next steps that will inspire and encourage others who are seeking creative ways to approach informal online STEM learning.
