STEM careers are rapidly growing in today's world, but boys are three times more likely to pursue STEM careers than girls. STEM You Can! is a youth-led nonprofit organization that provides free STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) summer camps for elementary and middle school girls (4th-6th grade) to spark their interest in science. We want to show girls that science and engineering fields are not only meant for boys and that they can pursue these careers as well, if they continue showing interest and work towards these goals. Our goal is not to discourage boys from pursuing scientific knowledge, rather to encourage young girls to do so. We hope to show young girls that science is fun and exciting by performing hands-on experiments to explore areas such as engineering, chemistry, astronomy, and biology. The activities we include in the camp promote teamwork and show the girls that science is creative and collaborative. Some of these activities included building towers, making slime, and creating edible terrariums. This program began in New Jersey and is currently running in 14 other states. This program began in Louisville, Kentucky four years ago, and last summer we expanded to Lexington and Prestonsburg, KY as well. The program was a success and the girls really enjoyed it, so this summer, we are excited to announce that we are running another camp in Louisville!

Over the next few weeks I will be making cards and decorations in honor of the International Day of Peace. They will include peace doves, quotes about peace, and facts about the International Day of Peace. About a week before the International Day of Peace, I'll deliver the cards to my local hospice center so that the patients in hospice care receive their cards in time for September 21st!

My 4 previous third grade classes realized that seed balls made gardening easy, fun, and accessible. They learned that seed balls grow endangered wildflowers needed by pollinators, protect seeds from wind, birds, squirrels, and other critters, and has easy dispersal for more uniform coverage. They also discovered that “planting” the seed balls sometimes didn’t involve a shovel – sometimes, they could be tossed “guerrilla-style” while on hikes in our local park areas. In addition to all these benefits, this year’s class would like to partner up with a first grade class, their “Study Buddies,” and show them how to hand roll the seed balls, too, hopefully “planting the seed” of knowledge that even smaller hands than an 8-year old’s can have a BIG impact on their surrounding environment.
