The Girl’s eSTEAM Club will offer 20 inner-city girls ages 10-18 an afterschool eSTEAM (entrepreneurship, science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) club one day a week, throughout the school year. Young girls participating in the program will engage in eSTEAM activities such as coding, videography, math and Makerspace activities (3D printing, robotics, game animation, music production, digital photography).
They will also engage in hands-on activities of investigation, exploration and creativity, develop or enhance their critical thinking and work collaboratively in a fun atmosphere. Assisted by an adult club coordinator, positive interaction and teamwork will be encouraged. The girls will also learn about careers in STEAM, how STEAM is used in and by businesses and be exposed to professionals in various STEAM fields (for example: Informatics, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Engineering, etc.).
