This is just a reminder that our February meeting is this Saturday, February 12. There are two events scheduled:
- STEM Out! Girl's Event: Crystal Hess has organized a day just for girls to hear stories from women in STEM careers, participate in hands-on activities, network with women peers and mentors, and have fun!
- Scratch Programming Workshop: Lauren Bricker is giving a workshop for teachers on the fundamentals of the Scratch visual programming environment.
The STEM Out! event goes from 9:30 to 2:30 in the UW Paul Allen Center Atrium and is free, including lunch. Registration is still open, so if you have young women students who might be interested, please encourage them to come!
Lauren's workshop, also free, is from 10:30 to 1:30, so teachers attending can still hang with their students. It is in the 6th Floor Commons Room of the Allen Center. We had been planning to offer 3 OSPI clock hours for this, but due to a planning error (OK, I messed up on the paperwork deadline), this will likely not happen in time. If you do want the clock hours, you could bring a check for $10, on the off chance a bureaucratic miracle occurs. Extreme apologies for this.
For the Scratch workshop, please bring a laptop with Scratch installed on it. We won't be in a computer lab for this session. You can get Scratch here: Scratch download.
Thanks. See you Saturday.
