The Saturday STEMLit tutorial and enrichment sessions ended on May 18th. Every other Saturday morning at 10 am, we opened the doors at the Sunrise Apt Complex to begin our Science and Math Tutorial and Enrichment Program. Our college volunteers and professionals were crucial to the success of our Saturday sessions. We learned a lot about plant life and planted our own blooming flowers. During the last session groups of participants presented the findings of their hypothesis.
At S4G's Giving Tuesday Gala several women in STEM careers were in attendance supporting our organization and mission. The gala, a family friendly event, featured many women in STEM, from the volunteers ranging from high schoolers, college graduates, professionals, and retirees. Attendees of the gala were treated informative speeches about the minorities, specifically women in various STEM fields. The keynote speaker, Roxanne Hughes, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Integrating Research and Learning at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (MagLab), specifically, highlighted the difference in the number of men and women in STEM fields, and how that gap has grown in recent years. These women are role models for our girls and we thank them for sharing their knowledge and experience with us.
S4G hosted the Lights on Afterschool Science Fair for the children of the community. There were several science experiment tables as well as distinguished guest speakers. The Science Fair sparked curiosity and challenged young minds while reinforcing the importance of supporting afterschool programs.
An room filled with children, youth, college students, and professionals.
Pictured is Zaira Leo and Tishauna Wilson. Zaira was a Science Fair participant. Tishauna was our honorary guest speaker and is a leader and role model for our young women in tech. Tishauna is a third year Computer Science undergraduate student at Florida A&M University. At just 20-years-old, Wilson was recognized among a group of distinguished black women at the McDonald’s 365Black Awards for developing technology-based programs at Florida A&M University (FAMU).
