Girls Inc. Eureka Program

Girls Inc. Eureka! Program
The Girls Inc. Eureka! program is an intensive, five-year STEM based program that builds girls’ confidence and skills through hands-on opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Utilizing a “whole girl” approach, the program also incorporates sports and physical fitness, personal development, and college and career readiness.

Serving girls from across the Denver-Metro area, Eureka! broadens girls’ future academic and career interests, encourages enrollment in advanced math and science courses, promotes positive risk-taking, and assists girls in developing networks of peers and mentors to support their future endeavors.

During Eureka! girls gain first-hand knowledge through a variety of exciting and compelling activities that explore the cutting edge world of STEM through experiences in a college campus environment. With complementary activities in healthy living, social justice and financial literacy, Eureka’s approach fosters educational, professional and personal development.

The vision of Girls Incorporated is empowered girls and an equitable society. We believe that girls have the right to bethemselves and to resist gender-stereotypes, to express themselves with originality and enthusiasm, to take risks, to strive freely, and to take pride in success, to accept and appreciate their bodies, to have confidence in themselves, to be safe in the world and to be prepared for interesting work and economic independence.
