The mission of Girls' Science Investigations (GSI: New Haven) is to motivate, empower, and interest girls in developing the skills they need to pursue careers in science. University students and professors act as mentors and provide a context for exploring and understanding the various disciplines of science through hands-on activities in a laboratory environment. Through student scientific-engagement and parental awareness, Girls' Science Investigations strives to close the gap in science found between males and females today.


Girls' Science Investigations is a free program for girls in sixth, seventh, and eighth grade who are interested in learning more about science.

Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained. - Marie Curie
