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: Curious Jane builds confidence through making things! We provide a gateway to STEM through creativity and imagination, with projects revolving around science + engineering + design. Join us for camp. Subscribe to our magazine.

Did you know you can regrow some veggies? We had great success with our scallions and romaine lettuce hearts. We also got our fennel and carrot tops to sprout some new greens! Just place your cut veggie ends in a clear glass with a bit of water and leave in a sunny spot. Check every day and replace with fresh water if needed. You should see your scallions shoot up right away, and your lettuce will begin to grow after a few days. Veggie regeneration — try it!

Where some people see junk, we see possibility! Swipe for just a couple of the ways we’ve turned trash into treasure... a powder room in our miniature house, and some funny marker cap finger puppets (from some dried out old markers). Raid your recycle bin and let inspiration strike!

Black out poetry is a fun way to be creative and show off your personality. Each of us started with the same thing (text from a home decor catalog rescued from the recycle bin 🙃... swipe through to see the original!) but the results are totally unique.
1...meditative doodle... Elissa is most relaxed when doodling so naturally her poem is a combo of words and graphic pen marks.🖋
2...keep it simple... Samantha’s poem proves you don’t need to get fancy to have a successful outcome. Sometimes simple and straightforward is best!🖊
3...rainbow bright... Alia used an array of tiny masking tape to turn her blackout poem into a colorful work of art.🌈
4...shimmery sparkle... Paola let her personality shine with her favorite materials - shiny sequins, sparkly bits + bobs, and silver glitter!✨
5...cut and paste... Caroline cut the lines of text into strips and rearranged them in a new order to form her unique poem.✂️

There are no rules for black out poetry... and we can’t wait to see what you create! Collect some old magazines or catalogs and some pens (markers, tape, and/or any other crafty bits!) and tune in LIVE *tomorrow afternoon at 3* to make your very own black out poem with Alia!

Spring fun fact: the spring equinox typically occurs on March 20th or 21st. But this year, spring has sprung early with the equinox happening today (on the 19th!) in the Northern Hemisphere, making it the earliest spring we’ve seen in our lives (so far)! The last time spring arrived this early was in 1896 – a whopping 124 years ago! #funfact #wereallinthistogether
