STEM for Girls

STEM for Girls

The Library has a STEM program for girls of all ages this afternoon from 4-5:30.
Everyone knows girls are awesome. Sadly though, as girls grow up, they’re far under-represented in science careers, and sometimes subliminally discouraged from even showing interest in these careers. We’re doing our part to change this course by offering STEM events just for girls where all ages are invited to play and learn in an open and nonjudgmental atmosphere. The events are led by Bell Middle School’s Girls in iSTEM Club.

STEM Competition for Girls
The Library and the Colorado School of Mines are partnering to sponsor a STEM competition for girls in grades 5-8.  Register on the Library’s website and visit the Library if you have questions about the competition.

What will you create? Think big. Think small. Think about how you can build a better world. We’re hosting a STEM Competition to challenge your brains. Creations should be an original design and related to energy and environment, health and nutrition, or biomedical. You should include a hypothesis and a visual aid of your concept – a video, tri-fold display, poster, model or anything that best conveys your innovation. You can work individually or in groups of four or less.

On February 22, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., you’ll present your project at the Golden Library for judging by students from Colorado School of Mines outreach program designed for girls (DECTech Students) will serve as judges for the competition. 

Winners will be honored at the International Women’s Day Luncheon on March 8 at the Denver Marriott West.  All contestants will receive a certificate of participation.
