Welcome to the Home of Girls in Research. The Girls in Research program is an exciting and fun way to learn about research.
Participants enjoy a week long summer camp experience held on the University of Kentucky campus. The girls live in a college dorm and participate in hands-on activities conducted by graduate students and professors from the University through out the week.
During the school year, the girls attend Saturday sessions that all located at a variety of colleges and community colleges in the region. The Saturday sessions provide an opportunity for the girls to see friends from camp and learn more about science and research.
