STEM Heroes w/ Ola (Grades K-1)

in: Virtual on: Thursday
meets: 3/4, 3/11, 3/18, 3/25, 4/1, 4/8, 4/15, 4/29
time: 4:00-5:00

What does a scientist look like? What about an engineer? A mathematician?

Come meet the people who dedicated their lives to finding out how the world works. We’ll learn about the passions that drove them, the impact they left behind, and the challenges they overcame.

In this literacy-based workshop, we will read about a different scientist or engineer each week. Then, we will make a model, toy, or craft that connects us to their discoveries or inventions.

Examples include:
– Make a chimpanzee to celebrate Jane Goodall’s pioneering work in primatology and conservation
– Model a black hole to explore Stephen Hawking’s predictions about black holes
– Build a double helix to share Rosalind Franklin’s insights into DNA structure

This class is designed for students in grades K-1.
