Speak Your Mind: Mad Science

There are some kick ass opportunities for teens to do some serious science, online and at local museums, labs, and other organizations near you. You can check some of them out on our Resources page. Some of the deadlines for signing up are this month, so get on over there now–unless you’re not interested in hands-on astronomy, paleontology, botany, genomics, robots, . . .

Okay, really? You’re not even interested in robots? What kind of freak are you?

But I digress. I know our list represents only a tiny fraction of the sciencey goodness out there, so let us have it. What are some of your favorite hands-on science websites, museums, camps, internships, or other opportunities for teens?

    I don’t know if this counts since it’s just a one day conference, usually, but Expanding Your Horizons is a great program for getting girls exposed to different sciences and scientists! There are a bunch of them all over the nation.

    Here’s the link to their website:

    It definitely counts! We’ll add it. Thanks!
