Water Works Informal Educators Training

I’m excited that Girlstart is offering another Water Works Camp this summer for entering 9th-10th grade girls! Last week, Didey, the Outreach and Recruitment Coordinator for the Women in Engineering Program from The University of Texas, Laura, the Program Coordinator for the National Girls Collaborative Project, and I had the pleasure of training 31 Informal Educators from across Texas in the Water Works curriculum. This summer Informal Camps from El Paso to Amarillo to Austin to Laredo and cities in-between will host week-long camps showcasing how creative engineering can be. Visit the WaterBotics You Tube page to see what the underwater robotics can do!

The Texas Girls Collaborative Project helped recruit two representatives from museums, higher education institutes, high schools and informal organizations who spent 5 information filled days discovering the Water Works curriculum and the resources to implement a meaningful summer camp experience.

The Water Works curriculum is based on WaterBoticsTM (NSF Award #0929574) in collaboration with the Texas Girls Collaborative Project.

Thank You Girlstart

Dear Girlstart,

My daughter teaching my son what she learned at camp

I thought I’d let you know that my daughter attended the Jr. Medic Camp this summer and it was such a wonderful experience for her.  She came home loving the programming and before camp she showed almost no interest in computers (not even games).  She told me it was because programming is all about math and that is her favorite subject.

I just wanted to share that with you because as the mom of a 5th grade daughter, finding ways to encourage her interest in math is science is a top priority for me.  I am on faculty in the Communication Studies Department at UT and my undergraduate degree is in biochemistry.  I understand how important it is that girls get these reinforcing messages.  I hope she can attend future events as well.

Thank you so much for your wonderful program!
