A STEM Mentoring Program for Girls
PiER is an academic program focused on providing high-achieving high school female students in grades 9 through 11 with rigorous field and laboratory experiences at Lacawac Sanctuary and local universities under the mentorship of female college faculty and staff. The students will gain valuable experience in advanced research skills by learning from college faculty mentors. The students will design and complete their own research project and will receive a mini-grant of up to $100 to complete the project. By working within the supportive community of like-minded females, the students will develop the confidence that enhances leadership skills for future success in college studies and career opportunities.
