Virtual sessions were a magical mixture of science, art, and fun.
My girls are 6 and 9 and they love Science Riot Grrls! The two-hour virtual sessions were a magical mixture of science, art, and fun. Their favourite session involved building a model paper human brain that they could wear on their heads like a hat. I really appreciated that you provided everyone supplies in advance – it was exciting for them to receive and look through their packages before each session. I also liked that the zoom sessions were kept small so that every child got individual attention.
Spotlight[s] diverse people that are contributing to science and technology
The curiosity, confidence and love of science that Science Riot Grrls brings out in kids is amazing. We love how they spotlight diverse people that are contributing to science and technology – a lot of the experiments and history they share are ones that most kids don’t have a chance to learn about elsewhere.

Rich Learning Experience
Empowers the kids with advanced technical knowledge but also integrates female focused science history to make it a STEAM program through and through.
“Science Riot Grrls is an incredible science experiment based kids enrichment program. My ten year old daughter Esmée has been attending the weekly after school program for the past three years. Esmée is a shy but inquisitive person, who is easily spoken over at school. Not at Science Riot Grrls! Wendy and her crew were able to bring Esmée out of her shell and boost her confidence by helping her apply her own innate gifts and curiosity to many fields of science. Through hands on experiments in biology, robotics, electronics, chemistry among other fields, Wendy not only empowers the kids with advanced technical knowledge but also integrates female focused science history to make it a STEAM program through and through. Science Riot Grrls is an exceptional educational enrichment program that I only wish was available to every child in our public schools!”
Easygoing way with the kids that makes science fun
Bea has been going to Science Riot Grrls for a number of years. She always looks forward to going and Wendy has an easygoing way with the kids that makes science fun . Bea has transferred her enthusiasm for SRG to a love of science in general. When we asked Bea what she likes the most, she said, “Elephant toothpaste. Doing the experiments and making things like robots! We highly recommend Science Riot Grrls.
