After School Spring 2016: Week 1

Building Gliders

At the first week of Spring 2016 After School, Girlstart girls explored the Engineering Design Process and built their own gliders! After they identified a problem question, brainstormed ideas, and built their prototypes, it was time to take off.


3, 2, 1, LAUNCH! Each plane was unique and took a different flight path.

After School Fall 2015: Week 10

Fall Showcases

This week was the final week for Girlstart After School’s Fall 2015 semester. At the end of each semester, we like to celebrate everything the girls learned with a fun showcase! Girls at each school worked in teams to recreate an activity that they did this Fall, making a poster about what they learned, and designing an open house booth to show it all off. Then, parents, family, friends, and teachers were invited to visit the showcases to see what the girls did over the course of the semester. All of the Girlstart girls worked so hard this Fall and the showcases are a great opportunity to see how much fun they had too.
