With the semester quickly coming to an end, Girlstart wanted to remind our After School
participants of all the interesting activities and STEM-related careers they learned about
this semester. They split into teams and put their knowledge to the test playing a review
game over the last nine weeks. Questions covered all of the careers from the semester,
different types of energy, renewable vs. nonrenewable resources, and challenged girls to
give examples of what they had learned.
After the game, Girlstart’s STEM Crew leaders talked to the girls about making goals
for their lives. They talked about what types of classes they would need to take in high
school and how much schooling was required for different degrees. The girls also
discussed the importance of making goals in their personal lives with family and friends
so they have the support necessary to reach their educational and career goals. Each girl
made their own star, decorating it with their goals and dreams.
