Event description
Join us for our free event, Girls in STEAM Night, for an awesome night of fun computer programming and engineering!

About this event

Dreams for Schools is proud to announce the return of our Girls in STEAM Night Event! Join us for a night of innovation and inspiration with guest speakers and hands-on workshops featuring activities from our Engineering Inventors and Web Development classes!

This is a FREE EVENT but registration is required as space is limited!

Our programs strive to inspire and educate students to pursue STEAM driven fields. There has always been an underrepresentation of women in STEAM careers. Due to this underrepresentation we have a perception that STEAM is a field dominated by men, which further discourages young girls from entering this field. Dreams for Schools wants to be able to show these girls all the amazing things they are capable of!

Students will be learning via ZOOM with some of our esteemed mentors. Workshop groups will be based on grade and skill levels. Join us for a night of fun as we offer workshops for two of our most popular programs!

Engineering Inventors (Recommended Grades 3-5):

  • Students will get hands-on experience with engineering and electronics projects by building a cool light-up wand! (materials will be distributed free of cost).

Web Development (Recommended Grades 6-12):

  • Students will be able to learn how to create their very own websites using coding languages: HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap (framework)— learning the best practices when creating a website and how to think creatively!

Schedule for the event:

  • Opening and introductions
