The bell dings and you have a couple of minutes to show off all there is about you. You whip out your Ant Lions and show off their gladiator stylings as they devour a fly that never stood a chance. What? You don’t do that on a first meeting? You would if you were at Show Me the Science!
We kicked off our first reverse science fair of the season on Saturday October 9, 2010 at Northeastern University. 21 presenters and 25 volunteers helped over 50 girls from the Boston area get to know Science and Engineering in a whole new way! From learning how to make dough from milk to trying to rip phone books in half, girls were able to experience the full gambit of STEM and learn that science and engineering is indeed fun and for everyone!
*We also have a new site at Northeastern University that meets each Saturday from 10:30-11:30am. This site is open to all girls in grades K2-6th grade and is FREE! Click here to learn more and download the application.
