SciGirls Naturalists: Tree-rific Trees!

Friday, October 13, 2017 (1 days)
9:00 am – 11:00 am

Environmental Nature Area

Brooklyn Park, MN

Description: ​Girls will learn how to identify Minnesota trees by their leaves, bark, and twigs! Discover the diversity of our local tress! 

Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math (STEM) is a hot topic these days! It is important for all children to learn and use STEM throughout their learning. Many educators lump STEM all together and focus on the engineering believing it is too difficult to teach. STEM is more than engineering and engineering is not what you may think it is! There are many different types of engineering from computer science to chemistry to bridge building to wetland restoration. 

The SciGirls Field Investigations will visit the natural history aspects of STEM. Each month girls will have a chance explore different areas of natural science and math from measuring trees to calculating diversity and more. Some projects will require girls to use technology to help them find answers to their problems. Many projects will require the girls to use math and most of this is not beyond the basic level, though girls should understand fractions and multiplication and division. And as often as possible art will be used to show our results (turning STEM into STEAM!). 

Target grade level: for ages 8 to 13

Cost per child/student: $15
