Animal World

Week 2 Recap

Girls explored many STEM careers this past week at Animal World including marine biology to cetology. One camper said, "we dissected more things in one week at Girlstart, than she has throughout school." Girls dissected squids, clams AND cow eyes! We only have one more week of all things animals.

Donor Spotlight: Miranda, age 8

Today, Girlstart wants to give a special thank-you to a very important donor. Miranda is a local 8-year-old who wanted to help Girlstart bring STEM fun to more girls. So she made us a part of her school project!

Miranda made Hexaflexagon kits, showed them off at a school fair, and sold them, with part of the proceeds going to Girlstart!

Hexaflexagons are fun paper devices that you can use to explore mathematical mysteries. Watch a fun video about them here. Miranda’s project was a hit! She sold
enough Hexaflexagons to donate $32 to help other girls attend Girlstart Summer Camps
this year. Thank you, Miranda!

Girlstart is able to provide our programs thanks to generous people like Miranda who believe that every girl deserves opportunities to learn about STEM. We are grateful to Miranda and everyone who helps us spread the word about how fun STEM learning can
be.  To join Miranda and make a donation to Girltstart click HERE. THANK You!
