Girls Get SET for Life: Science, Engineering, and Technology is a
program sponsored by the The Discovery Museums in Acton, MA and Tufts
University School of Engineering (Medford, MA) under a grant from
Lucent Technologies Foundation. The goal of the project is to promote interest
and aptitude in science, engineering, and technology in teams of middle
school girls by developing and producing museum exhibits to be displayed
in The Science Discovery Museum.
Successful completion of this project provides a model for collaboration
between schools, universities, and museums thoughout the country,
as well as developing a tool to promote interest in science and engineering
in girls and young women.
