Color Me STEAMED: Engaging Girls in STEM Education

Once upon a time…there was a planet, called Planet STEM. On this planet were girls who loved STEM careers – and they learned how to save themselves from a force so dark and evil, the only word for it was: ignorance. Learn in this interactive, 'colorful' session why it is critical to engage the next generation of STEAMED professionals (STEM + art, design and entrepreneurship). Several examples of methods for STEM engagement will be included in this session, including a children’s book series to encourage girls and boys to engage in STEM, other STEM educational resources, and a successful crowdfunding campaign to bring this children’s books series to life.
