STEM Sisters for Grades 6-12 girls

The North Museum’s STEM Sister program is back for girls in grades 6-12.  A little information is below as well as the link to the program.

The North Museum STEM Sisters program inspires, empowers, and ignites young women’s passion for STEM* careers.

Through engaging programs and activities, the STEM Sisters program offers young girls an opportunity to meet undergraduate and professional women in STEM fields and discover new potential career paths. The program’s ongoing events encourage and empower young women. All STEM Sisters events are provided at no cost to local girls in grades 6-12.

STEM Sisters


Welcome Back Hambright & Manor Students!

Now that routines are being established and students are feeling more settled, it’s time to start gifted support classes.  My schedule this year is as follows:

Manor: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday

I am scheduling small groups and one on one meetings starting this week.  Our new Google Classroom is set-up, and all students were sent an invitation to join.  I will be posting our seminar schedule and a general idea of what we will discuss when we meet.  Students that opt out of participating in seminars will continue to meet with me once or twice a marking period to check-in.  All field trips, speakers, and special event activities are always open to all those on the gifted support roster even if they don’t participate in the seminar classes.

Hambright: Tuesday and Thursday

I will start pull-out classes at Hambright next Tuesday, September 13th.  Grades 1, 4, and 6 meet on Tuesdays.  Grades 2, 3, and 5 will meet on Thursdays.  Each grade meets at its own specific time.  I will send home a letter with the students next week with some more information for you.

Girls Who Code (Girls ages 8-13)

I just found out about this opportunity:

Lancaster Science Factory Girls Code Club

The need: Only 18% of Computer Science degrees in the United States are awarded to women. Women’s involvement in computer science has plummeted. In the past 20 years it has dropped by 40%.

CoderDojo, Ladies, Technically Speaking, and the Lancaster Science Factory present Girls Code Club to address this urgent issue and inspire the next generation of female computer scientists.
