Helping organizations develop and implement STEM-related projects for girls is what the Northwest Girls Collaborative Project is all about! Examples of some great collaborative projects include:

Splash Soars: Engineering and Aeronautics
Splash Soars teaches girls the scientific principles of flight and gives them the opportunity to apply these principles while taking control of a glider in flight. Thirty 8th grade girls learned the principles of aerodynamics in Summer Science Splash, a four-week science program held at Seattle University. Instructors from the Society of Women Engineers guided the Splash lab experiments and were on hand to share in the girls' extraordinary experience of taking control of a glider in flight under the guidance of a certified pilot.

Fair Play: Design & Discovery
Girls entering the 7th - 10th grades explore design and engineering concepts during this interactive two-week day camp in Oregon, and an optional six-month mentorship. During the camp girls meet and work with engineers, designers, and researchers, and complete an independent project for presentation in a Solutions Showcase at the end of the camp. Girls may then sign up for the optional six-month mentorship with a professional engineer during which they complete a project and present it at a Mini Engineering Fair and are supported in entering projects in the Northwest Science Expo.
