Join Girlstart at the Georgetown Library on September 20, 2014 from 2:00-4:00pm for free Maker Day fun. The entire family is welcome to enjoy launching catapults, racing spools, creating your own kites and more! No registration required.
Most of us have flown a kite before, but have you ever wondered how a kite works? In this activity, you can build your very own kite out of paper and explore how the force of lift can counteract drag and allow your kite to fly through the air!
Girlstart's Back to School STEM Saturday was a huge success! Over 230 kids and parents kicked off the school year with exciting hands-on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities this past Saturday. Families engineered balloon boats, built racing spools, launched straw rockets, learned about polymers and created mini parachutes.
Thank you Samsung for inviting Girlstart to participate in a very special day with Senator Cornyn. The Girlstart girls and their parents met the Senator and enjoyed a private tour of the Samsung Fab Lab. It was a wonderful opportunity for girls to see how semiconductors are created and talk about career opportunities in technology.
