- Robotics team that meets and competes September to December (will require some weekly meetings)
- Monthly S.T. E².A.M.™ workshops
- S.T. E².A.M.™ field trips including STEM Career Day and Girls Entrepreneurship Expo
- College prep events, finance class, self esteem projects, and life skills projects
- Annual CCA events, including Sickle Cell Disease Awareness Service Program and Mother and Daughter Luncheon
Completion of this Registration Interest Form will allow the Chocolate Chips Organization to send the final registration information, health forms, tentative Program Schedule, and cost details.
NOTE: The Chocolate Chips Association High School girls will be invited to a minimum of 18 events from September to May, and we are aware due to conflict in schedules, sickness and unexpected events, girls will not be able to attend all events, BUT we ask parents to review the schedule once received, and if your daughter will not be able to attend at least 75% of CCA activites due to other already planed scheduled events, please do not register your daughter, as they will be taking a spot from a young lady that will be able to attend.
We host a few open events that girls can still participate with Chocolate Chips Association if they are not able to join the full program.
Thanks and we look forward to a GREAT S.T. E².A.M.™ year!
