    I’ve heard great things about this. Is there a companion program for boys (or for any kids)? I understand the emphasis for promoting science among girls, but would be great to know of programs for all kids.

      Hello! Unfortunately, all our programs are for girls only. I am not sure if there are any similar programs for all kids.

    Hi. We live in Chapel Hill. Would our daughter be eligible to apply?
    Thank you

      Yes, while we do preference students who live in Durham, your daughter is still eligible to apply if there are enough spots! The Saturday Program for this semester has already started, but she is welcome to participate in our future programs.

    Hi. I realize that you would prefer students who live in Durham, but any chance of excepting a student who lives in Southern Pines, NC? Also, how do we get on your mailing list? I have a 4th grader (female) who in interested in and is good at math and science. I would like to expose her anything and everything in those fields. Thank you.

      Hello! Thanks for your interest in FEMMES! While we give preference to girls who live in Durham, we’re happy to accept students from outside Durham if there are still open spots (which there usually are, especially for Capstone and the Saturday programs). To get on our mailing list, please send us an email ( — make sure to make the second AT a @ symbol) and ask us to be added to our mailing list!
