Celebrating Girls in STEM
April 4 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
NC Association Member schools are invited to apply for participation in this showcase. School leaders will select exemplary STEM projects completed by groups of girls in alignment with the scientific method. The group will create a tri-fold presentation board that outlines their project by category: project title, testable question, hypothesis, variables, materials, procedure, data, results/interpretation, and conclusion.
Grade categories are as follows:
- Two (2) Kindergarten – 2nd grade exhibits
- Six (6) 3rd – 5th grade exhibits
- Six (6) 6th – 8th grade exhibits
- Six (6) 9th – 12th grade exhibits
Students will begin the day in the NC Zoo’s Stedman Education Building to hear a keynote address from Dr. Nehemiah Mabry, Bridge Design Engineer/NCSU Teaching Professor, and participate in a Q and A with women leaders in science fields. Following the Q and A, girls will stand by their tri-folds as guests circulate and ask questions. Science professionals will be on hand to provide the girls feedback on their projects. Lunch will follow with the afternoon spent enjoying the NC Zoo!
