For the past several sessions, the Project STEAM Rolers have been learning, sharing and having fun working together on activities focused on engineering principles and an introduction to STEAM careers. Activities that introduced the theory of time travel through building time machines, presented engineering principles through the construction of popsicle stick bridges and an introduced the history of coding using morse code to devise and decode messages have stretched their imaginations and presented STEAM as accessible and possible.
"The Project is really just getting started," says PSR director, Lori Ward. "We have a small group of girls who are bright and curious, intuitive and daring. While we are looking forward to growing the program and having the ability to include more participants, this is a special time to create a model program based on what we learn from our current cohort. There is so much more to come!"
