I Love it When STEM Outreach Makes the News

My best friend from college was recently part of a STEM workshop for middle school girls, and it made the Washington Post.  I’m excited for all the events they did at the workshop, the enthusiastic response of the girls who participated, and that a major newspaper took notice.  Also, I’m jealous of the really cool projects they did, which included building artificial hearts from rubber tubing, launching straw rockets, and a workshop on combating bioterrorism.  Definitely time for me to go work another STEM outreach event – I want to play, too!

Have you ever been to a STEM workshop or outreach event?  What did you think of it?
