F.E.M.M.E.S. Advance is our program tailored for high school students! Advance events aim to cultivate excitement about STEM, build leadership and communication skills, and give students the opportunity to explore STEM-related college and career options. Like other F.E.M.M.E.S. programs, Advance supports underrepresented groups in STEM, particularly women+. 


As its largest event, F.E.M.M.E.S. Advance hosts a yearly Capstone, where participants actively engage with STEM material! Similar to our original 4th-6th grade Capstone, the Advance Capstone includes a Keynote speaker, a schedule of hands-on experiments, and supportive small-group settings to interact with peers and mentors.  The Advance Capstone builds on our elementary program with activities that promote leadership capabilities, communication skills, DEI awareness, and college readiness.  The next F.E.M.M.E.S. Advance Capstone will take place weekly on Saturdays from 12-2 starting February 29 and concluding March 21. This event will be held virtually.  Registration is now open. Learn more here!


This year Advance also hosted a fall College Readiness Series for the first time! Over the course of two college panels and one application workshop, students built their confidence in applying to STEM college programs. We’d love to see you at this event in the fall of 2021!
