Curious Jane

Curious Jane We run summer programs and workshops focused on science, design + engineering for girls 5 - 12. We also publish Curious Jane Magazine!
Curious Jane started 8 years ago as a summer program for girls ages 5-12. We run these programs in Brooklyn + Manhattan, San Francisco + Berkeley, CA and Denver, CO; we create a space for girls to be inventive in a positive, high-energy atmosphere. We are building a community of confident, inquisitive young girls. We also print a magazine! Curious Jane magazine is full of DIY inventiveness, clever How-To's, and savvy profiles on innovative and inspiring girls and young women. It's in print and full of fun things to do and make!

Visit our website at www.curiousjane.fun for information on locations, dates and themes for our summer programs, weekend workshops and birthday parties.

Mission: Empower girls to make + create! Inspire girls to try new things! Encourage girls to express themselves + their ideas! Teach girls the basics of bot-making, LED's + gadgets!
