Description

DETAILS HAVE BEEN FINALIZED! Thanks to the great committee at Bucks County Community College!



April 28, 2018 BCCC (Bucks County Community College) and AAUW (American Association of University Women) will host the 3rd Annual StemGirlz Discovery Day. All Middle School girls from the area are welcome to attend.

We form groups of 10 girls who will be lead by high school members of Girls Who Code and college student volunteers throughout the day. Girls will be asked to name up to 3 girls they would like to have in their group. Faculty from Bucks County Community College and other volunteers have developed hands-on workshops that will engage and enlighten the girlz.

This year we have events including chemistry experiments, 3D design and printing, astronomy activities, biotechnology, biology, arduino activities, programming in HTML, Alexa, Java and Python as well as visit to the Artmobile exhibit "The Art of Pollination". Girls will have lunch and a special presentation by the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, as well as time to explore the "STEM Playground".
