Put a Little Science in it

Shooting for the Stars this summer in Hartsville! (at Coker College)

The summer camp is off to a great start and our scholars have travel to new heights. Our scholars geared up to explore the world of Astronomy and they were not afraid to get those hands dirty while doing it. During this week, Girls University introduced its scholars to the world of stars and machine making. The scholars had the opportunity to learn the solar system, planets, and oxygen in space.

Some of the activities included the scholars making their own galaxies, and also making their own time capsules. The girls used masons jars and popsicle sticks to make it all while taking the opportunity to learn about galaxies. They also learn about mixing chemicals and learning the few ways EXPLOSIONS (safely) can happen. The scholars had the opportunity to make gummy worms dance. Who knew gummy worms had moves? The scholars used their new knowledge on chemical reactions to make the gummy worms dance.

During this week the competition was on. The scholars had an opportunity to show off their structural engineering skills by splitting into groups and building their own structures.  The goals of these activities was to give the girls knowledge on Engineering, Astronomy, and Science. The girls learned all about teamwork, the engineering design process, and how a shooting star is made. Shooting for the stars is what Girls University is all about.

GIRLS UNIVERSITY LAUNCHES PRESCHOOL STEAM ACADEMY

“Mini Miss STEAM Academy”
Motivate. Inspire. Educate. TM 

Florence, SC – January 23, 2017- Afterschool program launches Florence’s first gender-based day academy to introduce pre-schoolers to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) “Girls University”.

Girls University was established to motivate, inspire and educate girls in the Pee Dee.  Identifying the need to provide girls with programming combine with specialized tools, allows for Girls University to create a model of success.  Understanding the shortage of women entering STEAM fields and the numerous career opportunities we decided to launch Girls U Mini Miss STEAM Academy.

Girls University are great supporters of the STEM movement and are always encouraging girls hoping they break out of those stereotypes and dive into fields that have not been historically filled by women. We know it’s not always easy, but we agree with exposure and support to solve the problem and offer more diverse offerings for students at a younger age in order to get all students hooked on science, tech, engineering and math as soon as possible in their education careers.

Girls University will host their grand opening for Mini Miss STEAM Day Academy on February 7th, 2017 at their location located at 1249 Celebration Blvd, 29501 from 10:00 am to 11:00 am.
