FAQs


How do I register my daughter for the next FEMMES Capstone?

Registration will open up 4-6 weeks before a capstone event is scheduled to take place.  Once registration opens up, you will be able to download registration forms or register here.  We also send out forms to schools that we have established relationships with.

 

My daughter has attended a capstone event in the past; will I automatically be able to register her again?

We love that our events get girls so excited about STEM, that they want to come back! We often have girls come to multiple capstones; however, we do not contact previous attendees to register again. This is because the mission of FEMMES is to provide STEM exposure to girls who normally would not have such an opportunity.  This means trying to reach as many DIFFERENT girls and as many DIFFERENT schools as possible, particularly in underserved areas.

Does FEMMES hold events outside of Capstone Events and Afterschool Activities?

Can boys participate in FEMMES events?

Capstones no. Any other event, we focus on girls, but we do not discriminate against boys.

 

I am not currently a student at the University of Michigan, can I still volunteer with FEMMES?
