aMUSE Journey for Juniors grades 4-5
Who am I? Who would I like to be? Imagine the possibilities !
What happens on an aMUSE Journey? Here is a sneak peak.
All Workshops4girls programs are all now virtual.
NOTE: Some pictures below were taken before Covid restrictions. We encourage girls to give their project presentations in person for more practice. This gives them some fun ideas. We also realize that many people use our website as a resource, so we have virtual and in-person program examples to inspire you if you are running your own Amuse Journey.
