Project Squad

Project Squad invites teen girls to create a science fair project, in keeping with the requirements of both SciFest and BT Young Scientist.


The sessions begin with brainstorming and then cover research methodology, project management, experimentation/data collection and results reporting.

2020 Sessions begin the week starting September 7th.


A finale, on the 13th week, culminates in poster presentations as part of SciFest. This year’s SciFest will be Saturday December 12th on the hopin virtual platform.
