Engaging Girls in STEAM: Inspiring Future Generations
Do you have girls in your program who are interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) and you are not sure how to support them to pursue their interests? Research shows that girls begin to lose both their interest and confidence in science and STEAM by middle school.
In this training, participants will be introduced to successful women in STEAM careers and learn how to create a safe, fun, STEAM learning experience for ALL YOUTH. Participants will leave this training with ready-to-go activities and videos that will introduce youth to professional women in STEAM and support girls (and all youth) to build confidence and skills in STEAM areas.
a. Name strategies to create a safe learning space for girls to thrive in STEAM.
b. Categorize female STEAM professionals and career fields.
c. Implement STEAM activities for youth related to specific STEAM career fields.
