E-STEAM Project for Girls

IMG_8657

NSU’s American Association of University Women hosted the “E-STEAM Project for Girls” on Thursday, November 15. What an exciting and informative second session for the eight students from the Pace Center for Girls. The day started off with Instructional Designer, Mary Young discussing what goals are and student shared their own personal goal. Then they moved into creating their individual PowerPoints after discussing what STEAM is. They used K-W-L to show what they know, want to know, and learned about STEAM. Following this activity, the girls attended a live college course UNIV 1000 with Dr. Molly Scanlon. While sharing a pizza lunch together, the college students showed their own group videos they created based on a chapter from the book Always Eat Left Handed by Rohit Bhargava. The videos ranged from the do’s and don’ts of active listening to risk taking and not sweating the small stuff. The final event was going back to the computer lab where the girls continued working with Dr. Scanlon on their PowerPoint presentations. They discussed the eight aspects of wellness and rated themselves on a scale of 0-10 for each of the categories. This then helped them figure out what their goal will be based on this information. They continued engaging in active group discussion on these interesting topics for the rest of this event.
