What to expect at Girls Build! Day

The day includes an all-female panel discussion about STEM careers. While drop-in attendance is allowed, we encourage you to plan for participation in the full day, as this is a programmed event with specific start times. Here's a sneak peek at the program:


Meet representatives from more than 15 museums, youth programs, design firms and pro-girl agencies to learn about opportunities for girls in the Chicago area. Make and test solutions at STEM activity stations.


Curious about STEM careers? Bring your questions to help shape the conversation. Girls will hear about the unique challenges and successes a panel of female professionals faced as they pursued careers in architecture, engineering and design.

  • All girls must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Refreshments will be served, and every participant will walk away with a goody bag.
  • Online registration is not available for this program. To register, call 312.922.8687.
