Water Works

Informal Educators Training


I’m excited that Girlstart is offering another Water Works Camp this summer for entering 9th-10th grade girls! Last week, Didey, the Outreach and Recruitment Coordinator for the Women in Engineering Program from The University of Texas, Laura, the Program Coordinator for the National Girls Collaborative Project, and I had the pleasure of training 31 Informal Educators from across Texas in the Water Works curriculum. This summer Informal Camps from El Paso to Amarillo to Austin to Laredo and cities in-between will host week-long camps showcasing how creative engineering can be. Visit the WaterBotics You Tube page to see what the underwater robotics can do!

The Texas Girls Collaborative Project helped recruit two representatives from museums, higher education institutes, high schools and informal organizations who spent 5 information filled days discovering the Water Works curriculum and the resources to implement a meaningful summer camp experience.

The Water Works curriculum is based on WaterBoticsTM (NSF Award #0929574) in collaboration with the Texas Girls Collaborative Project.
