EmpowHer Institute girls from two partner schools participated in a week long science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) program. We partnered with
Lucas Scholars. The program is a one week STEAM and project-based learning camp known as Lucas Scholars. The mission of Lucas Scholars is to provide under-served students access and experience with innovative technology that supports joy and exploration. The program is free of charge, offers access to mentors and asks that students work together, have fun and view themselves as scholars.
On the final day the students had an exhibit of their projects. We were so proud of the team work and creativity of our girls from Environmental Charter Middle School-Inglewood and Gardena. They created projects that defied gravity and saved marine animals. I was pleased to hear them say that they learned a lot from their failures. What an opportunity for our girls!
