FEMMES+ offers two free 5-week programs: the FEMMES+ After-School Program and the FEMMES+ Saturday Program. The After-School Program is offered at the schools listed or on Zoom (see below for specific designations). The Saturday Program is offered to all Durham 4th-6th grade students and will be held on Zoom. 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.
