American Association of University Women-NSU and Halmos Team Up to Build PACE E-STEAM

AAUW ESTEAM GroupOn September 28, eight students from the PACE Center for Girls started their “E-STEAM (Exploring – Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) Project for Girls”. This experiential learning initiative is dedicated to encouraging girls to pursue higher education and STEAM careers by way of mentorship, interactive activities and academic success workshops. Along with icebreakers and a tour of the campus, the PACE girls participated in a goal setting workshop led by AAUW-NSU faculty members Molly Scanlon, Ph.D. and Maureen McDermott, Ed.D. They also worked with Halmos College M.S. in Marine Science graduate student Sarah Gumbleton. Sarah taught them about sea birds. The girls especially liked handling the bird bones and claws.

This initiative is paid for by a 2017-18 AAUW Community Action Grant. This is a prestigious and highly competitive award, which funds innovative programs that promote education and equality for women and girls.
