These units permit busy instructors of limited scientific backgrounds to engage female, minority, or bilingual students in science through oral/literacy-based activities that feature biographic vignettes of demographically diverse scientists.

With features like bilingual materials and biographies of diverse scientists, this program builds the science skills of girls and minorities while bringing awareness to the barriers they can face in scientific fields. Afterschool SCIENCE encourages students' speaking and literacy skills as they gain comfort with scientific principles through hands-on, exploratory activities. For busy instructors with varying levels of science experience, these materials are easy to use, straightforward, and concise.
