Application Geek Girls Spring 2022 Programs
STEM is in everything despite your sex and gender roles. Stereotypes like “women only belong in the house” overshadow the validity of their experiences and how it relates to STEM. Cleaning is understanding bioparticle science, cooking is chemistry, and crafting as engineering and design. These are skills anyone would need to survive and navigate small and big problems in the 21st century. Stereotypes as the one just shared overshadows the truth in how women have changed our world by being its first programmers and human computers, discovering the world’s best inventions that we still use today. We do not give enough credit to the gender roles society has boxed women’s experience within and their relationship to STEM. This Spring program continues with the Femme STEM Mystique series exploring taboo topics of womenhood and their connections to social justice and STEM.
This 10 week program will consist of weekly meetings from 4:30pm to 6:30pm.
Spring Workshops Include:
– Guest Speakers
– Panel Discussions
– Hands on STEAM experiments
… And More!
