What We Do
An exciting STEAMpark initiative happening now is STEMgirls Online Weekly Workshops, a virtual learning program that offers year-round academic and social-emotional connectedness for girls in 3rd to 8th grades. With Inquiry-based STEM projects and group lessons taught by certified teachers, girls also enjoy meeting female speakers from STEM fields, computer programming instruction and teen mentors/tutors to help individually outside of class. Girls from all over are learning and growing together in safe, online classrooms, learning critical skills to help them navigate the new normal. Curriculum for each session is thematically presented with a focus on relevant topics and career paths that students have indicated an interest in, with collaborative partner support. Based on the success of STEMgirls, we are expanding our reach and are starting STEAMpark Online which will provide this programming to girls and boys.
