Click! Spy School

Click! Spy School engages girls ages 10-14 in solving mysteries and completing covert missions using key STEM concepts through informal project-based learning experiences. This program combines relatable and fun narratives with cutting-edge technology to foster tactile-based inquiry, real-world problem solving skills, and career exploration in STEM fields. Local and national female STEM professionals from esteemed companies and universities regularly contribute to the curriculum, guest counsel, serve as professional mentors, and act as cameo roles in the camps' narrative. Click! Spy School engages girls predominantly through Summer Camp programs at Carnegie Science Center, as well as through interactive online experiences and condensed activity sessions. Each program of the Click! Spy School promotes learning through "play," while incorporating elements of "design" and "make" into specific activities. Playing is an integral part of solving the mystery; by enacting the role of an agent-in-training, each participant is learning through doing.
