Message From Northern Counties STEAM Team
The volunteers on the Northern Counties STEAM Team have been brainstorming possible events/camps…. that we could host in our area. We came up with a HUGE list and would like your troops help in prioritizing.
Please forward this Survey Monkey link to your troops, asking them to complete it by 10/15. The survey can be done as a troop, or girls can complete it individually. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DY5KZNX
Also, Erica Fifer, our engineering/science brain, will be running two workshops at Northern Lights (11/17 in Mount Vernon). The morning session will be showing folks how to use the updated curriculum for Stream Watchers, Tiny Truss and Explore Engineering with LEGOS. She will cover recruiting volunteers and organizing the event based on her recent experience with the kits.
The afternoon STEM for Adults class will be a hands on exploration of the new STEM badge kits, such as fling fliers. She has used them and found them poorly written and hard to use. This session will focus on how to take apart and make the kits and curriculum your own, taking the mystery out of them.
