COVID-19 Update: Dear students and families, in light of current COVID-19 pandemic, the University plans to hold Spring and Summer term classes online only. As a result, in an effort to put everyone’s health, safety, and well-being first, all in-person K-12 programs have been canceled for this summer. We look forward to serving you in the future. Feel free to visit the University’s website for other U-M COVID-19 updates.

Galaxy Girls
Current 8th & 9th graders

Galaxy Girls is a 7-day residential program for current 8th and 9th-grade students. During the program, participants will live in University housing, tour the campus and become immersed in fundamental disciplines of Aerospace Engineering and space science at the nation’s oldest aerospace program. 

The University of Michigan started the first collegiate aeronautics program in the United States in 1914. But it doesn’t stop there. Both our undergraduate and graduate programs rank in the Top 5 in the nation by U.S. News and World Report.

Galaxy Girls is open to all current 8th and 9th grade students, regardless of gender.
