The Octavia Project

Octavia Project offers free summer programs for young women, trans, and nonbinary youth. We run two free summer programs: our Summer Institute for ages 14-18, and our Summer Camp for ages 10-13. We use speculative fiction and interdisciplinary workshops to spark interest in and break down bias around STEM subjects like science and tech. Participants stretch their minds by musing on alternate histories with authors like Hugo Award winner N.K. Jemisin; coding interactive games; worldbuilding with architects; and mapping new cities with urban planners. In these explorations, their work grapples with gentrification, body image, climate change, racism, homophobia, and more.
