“Encouraging young people to be makers of things…

not just consumers of things.” President Obama

Yesterday President Obama announced his “Educate to Innovate” initiative to inspire young scientist to pursue more science, technology and math. The White House announced several national events, including National Lab Day the first week in May, all in an effort to inspire more students to get excited about STEM. The President will also host a national science fair at the White House to celebrate young scientist and their accomplishments.

Girlstart applauds this effort to bring STEM education to the forefront as a national priority.

Twitter, Tweet, Followers, Oh My!

Every time I see the Sprint Now Network commercial I wonder if my friends and/or family are part of the 26% of viewers who don’t know what Twitter is. I feel safe to say my mother probably has little idea about Twitter.

Register for Girlstart’s Social Networking 101 Workshop for this Thursday, May 14th and change the statistic. Get your questions answered about online communities and discover how to best use Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn to fit your needs.

21st Century Interviews


The past few months I have interviewed numerous smart, energetic, and qualified young women to fill Girlstart’s summer camp counselor positions. Little did I know when I started this process that the majority of my interviews would happen online! Girls from across the country have logged in from their dorm rooms using free technology like Skype or iChat. Friends and families are using these easy to use online technologies to feel more connected than a traditional phone call. My first interview was interesting and definitely a learning experience, however once you get over the fact you can see yourself talk the conversation flows really well. This summer Girlstart is able to have the best talent from across the United States with the help from cool technology!
