NSU Branch of AAUW Welcomes PACE students for Second Session of E-STEAM

PACE AAUW

Eleven students from the PACE Center for Girls visited NSU for their second session of the “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.

The PACE students started their day by attending an Introduction to Athletic Training course taught by Associate Professor Pradeep Vanguri, Ph.D., ATC.  During the class, the PACE students joined discussion groups with NSU students to create an educational pamphlet about HIV and Hepatitis. Faculty members Molly Scanlon, Ph.D. and Maureen McDermott, Ed.D., continued their workshop in which the students formulated short term and long term goals for academics, career exploration, and health/wellness in their personalized journals. After lunch, OIIT Instructional Designers Kerrian Gordon, M.S. and Mary Young, B.A. led a workshop on Power Point. Each student was provided a thumb drive and a Power Point template and learned how to personalize the reporting of their E-STEAM experiences. NSU-AAUW undergraduate student members provided mentorship throughout the day.

The Nova Southeastern University branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW-NSU) has been collaborating with the Alvin Sherman Library and Broward’s PACE Center for Girls since 2008. Funding has been provided 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.
