FEMMES offers two free 6-week programs: the FEMMES After-School Program and the FEMMES Saturday Program. The After-School Program is offered at the schools listed below. The Saturday Program is offered to all Durham 4th-6th grade students and is located on campus at Duke University. Please note that participants can only participate in one of these programs (not both).
In both of our programs, 4th-6th grade students will participate in hands-on activities introducing basic chemistry, biology, physics, engineering, and mathematics concepts. Students will be placed in small groups with a Duke undergraduate mentor who will help them with the activities and gaining an understanding of fundamental concepts.
