Girlstart is busy with lots of after school clubs, Saturday programs and more but we still find time to have fun in the office! Continuing from Girlstart Games Saturday Workshop last weekend (click here if you missed the recap), the staff and STEM Crew showed off cool and unique braids inspired by Katniss Everdeen all week.
GENaustin presents We Are Girls Conference annually to help girls explore issues of bullying, body image, and being a girl. Girlstart had the privilege of hosting a workshop at the conference where girls got to be structural engineers. They built roller coasters out of pipe insulation, tape and marbles. Participants learned that kinetic and potential energy play a big factor when putting in loops and turns into their roller coasters. Thank you GENaustin for having Girlstart!
