The Denver Museum of Nature & Science and CBS4 hosted Girls & Science on Saturday, March 3, 2018. See photos.
Girls & Science is a creative spin on the traditional career fair. Girls get to meet women in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) professions to learn what they do, who they are and what inspires them through hands-on activities and conversations. CBS4 and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science hope meeting these STEAM professionals encourages young women to discover an interest in STEAM related educational and career opportunities.
Attendees of Girls & Science got to:
– Meet and chat with women who are in STEAM related careers (or who use science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics in surprising ways in their work) and explore the cool tools of their trade.
– Participate in activities you may not expect from a career in STEAM (activities are geared toward ages 8-13)
Girls & Science gives young women the opportunity to explore a variety of STEAM “clubhouses,” where girls can meet women scientists and experience the many diverse opportunities a future in science, technology, engineering, art, and math can bring.
This day is all about igniting a passion for science—so try it on, test it out, and play!
CBS4’s clubhouse — “Lauren Whitney’s Electric Lightning Show” — was hosted by Meteorologist Lauren Whitney. Attendees got the chance to meet Lauren and learn how she uses science in her career.
