Rosie Riveters Pre-K- 1st Grade Afterschool Program
Wed, March 22, 2017, 4:30 PM – 5:30 PM EDT
The core of Rosie Riveters’ programs is a project-based, after-school curriculum for girls aged 4-14 (grades pre-K-8) that is open to the public and is completely free of charge. Each of the twelve sessions of our 4-week program features:
an interactive overview of a STEM concept (density, circuits, chemical reactions, etc.);
a tangible and hands-on project that explores that concept;
exploration of real-world careers associated with the above project through interaction with mentors.
The hands-on projects at the core of our program teach STEM skills, encourage girls to develop their own creative processes for design and implementation, and enable them to see their skills in action. All these elements work together to develop each participant’s confidence in her abilities.
IF YOUR CHILD ATTENDED THE FEB/MARCH 2016 PROGRAM AT SHIRLINGTON, PLEASE DO NOT ENROLL HIM/HER IN THIS PROGRAM AS CONTENT WILL BE REPEATED.
There are four separate projects available for each age group. Please individually register your child for each project date they wish to participate in. We encourage participants to register for all four projects in a program period.
Program PoliciesEach project offered by Rosie Riveters costs roughly $50/child to deliver and we want to ensure that our programs are able to provide a positive impact to as many participants as possible. With this in mind, please note our no show and late policies below:
- No show- Those who fail to attend a program without prior notice will need to relinquish their remaining spots to children on the waitlist.
- Late arrivals- Those who arrive late to two classes will need to relinquish their remaining spots to children on the waitlist.
