SciGirls: Science for Girls!
SciGirls, largely funded by the National Science Foundation, has developed a series of public television programs highlighting the processes of science and engineering and offers girls a glimpse of exciting STEM career possibilities. On the English-language SciGirls website, users can watch full episodes, view profiles of women scientists, play educational games, download activities, create personalized web pages, "friend" other users, upload their STEM projects, and vote for their favorite projects from other SciGirls. SciGirls Español and SciGirls en Familia are two Spanish language SciGirls programs.
Dr. Julie Malmberg, of the GLOBE Program Office (GPO) Science and Education team, will be attending a SciGirls Train-the-Trainer workshop in Twin Cities, Minnesota, from 13-15 May and will be sharing these resources and activities with the GLOBE community.GLOBE Science Topics: Backyard Science Primary Audience: Teachers Students Curriculum: Science and Math type: globe-news
