skills

We teach them the skills needed for their engineering projects through a project based learning environment.

making can help students develop creativity, perseverance and the ability to innovate.

exploration

They apply these skills through creativity, exploration, and investigation.

steam talks

We invite dynamic, interesting women who work in Architecture, Game Design, DataAnalysis,Electrical/Mechanical/Biomedical Engineering,BioTechnology or an Entrepeneur to speak to our girls.

Girls Who Code
Genius Bar
Career Madreicha
STEAM Studio

The girls who code club is part of a national movement that empowers young women in the computer sciences. The club members will work together on a science impact project, which involves using computer science to solve problems relevant to the community. In this club, members will also learn the Core4 computer science concepts, variables, loops, conditional and functions, that form the foundation for all computer programming languages.

Genius Bar - reverse mentorship for women reentering the workforce
Career Madreicha - interview women in different professions and interview/record and edit and compile them on a website to help women be exposed to different career options. possibly using STEAMTALKS videos
STEAM Studio for upper classmen is project based enrichment activities during lunch

autogarden

Maker Space is a laboratory of ideas.

we believe strongly to surround our students with exhibitions of innovation
sooo cool
how can I make that

fill in with knowledge

expertise to bring their ideas into fruition

Teaching Teachers

Orly and Gila presenting at NSTA conference in Orlando in July

Gila and Orly ran a PD day at Bergen Academies for STEM teachers and I will be giving a wearable technology workshop to teachers in January.

I taught a STEAM summer session to middle school students at Bergen Academies and will be

Expanding the Classroom

Hosting visitors from the federation

we have forged a partnership with the federation volunteer makerspace assistants allow us to lower our student-teacher ration.

  • Federation Grant -Partnership with the Jewish Home at the Rockleigh, Pairing our students with Parkinsons patients.
  • Legacy Foundation Grant for Makerpsace
  • Anonymous Naming Grant

ENCOURAGE HER TO BE CURIOUS

ENABLE HER TO CREATE
How do we encourage our girls to be curious?
We introduce them to tools and techniques. We introduce them to soldering irons, microcontrollers, sensors and 3D printers and wire strippers and motors and led's. We teach them how to code and how to sew using conductive thread. So when she wakes up and says what if, she will have the tools to make that idea into a reality.
Style of teaching where you know what the outcome will be to style of teaching where you don't know

Not a failure but a perfect first try

be curious, explore interests, and pursue passions,

imagining, creating, designing, building, engineering, evaluating

Success is if it works, if the lights light up if the robot runs

Strong Female Role Models
one of the key factors in women continuing in the STEM field
