Annual event that exposes students to the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Students rotate through fun hands-on exercises, learn about career opportunities, and meet leaders in each S.T.E.A.M. field.
One part of this movement is the The B.E. Y.O.U. Workshop. It is designed to help children develop and maintain a positive self-image and self-esteem through three steps: 1) Know Who You Are (establishes a foundation based on self-awareness); 2) Understand What Influences You (helps recognize the impacts of external influences); and 3) Stay True to Self (teaches techniques to deal with influences while maintaining a strong self-image and self-esteem). Learning objectives for each step are taught through fun hands-on exercises and discussion. As a workshop capstone, the children will create a vision board that expresses who they are and who they want to be.
This workshop can be tailored to any age group, gender, and length of time.
We are partnering with Chesapeake Math and IT Academy (CMIT) South Academy in Upper Marlboro, MD to present "Girls Breaking Down the STEM Door" to the 6-10th grade female students. This will be a day full of fun and challenging hands-on exercises in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) disciplines.
This event will coincide with the International Day of the Girl Child (October 11), an international observance day declared by the United Nations that supports more opportunity for girls and increases awareness of gender inequality faced by girls worldwide based upon their gender.
We need your help: 2018 event planning has started! It's going to be a great day and opportunity for these girls so see how amazing and diverse STEM women are. Please contact us if you are interested in leading a session or supporting the event. As always, we welcome financial donations.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
