STEM for Girls
Are you interested in science or math? Does technology excite you? Then come GROW with STEM in our program just for middle school girls!
STEM for Girls
Participation is free to the first 30 girls who are accepted. This includes a t-shirt and lunch at The World Famous Bean on ACU's campus. A 45-minute campus tour is available to participants who are interested.
What is the STEM for Girls program?
This event brings together middle school girls and ACU professors and students in a day dedicated to exploring possibilities in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). There will be fun, hands-on activities that allow you to engage in a variety of STEM fields and have the opportunity to interact with female professors and university students in small groups.
Who are the directors?
STEM for Girls at ACU is led by Dr. Jennifer Shewmaker, associate professor of psychology, and Dr. Sarah Lee, assistant professor of biochemistry. Both of these ladies have impressive experience in research and teaching in the science fields, and are passionate about inspiring other intelligent young women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
What do you need to do to participate?
Participants must complete the application below, and submit a letter of recommendation from a science, math, or technology teacher stating that they have shown interest in that class, and have no office referrals for behavior. The letter should also include the teacher's evaluation of their ability in the STEM area that their class represents. Recommendation letters should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration is now full for the April 2012 STEM for Girls day at ACU. We look forward to hosting similar events for math- and science-minded young ladies in the future; check back with us soon to learn more.
