What does Girl Day look like?

K-8th grade programming will be shared in 10+ enewsletters sent throughout virtual Girl Day from Monday, February 22 through Sunday, March 7. Each weekend day will include a virtual "booth" experience within the Brazen platform where participants can explore booths with hands-on activities, demonstrations, videos, and role models available for one-on-one video chats with participating families. Each weekend day also includes scheduled live broadcast science demos and shows. Registrants will receive information on suggested materials for hands-on activities and will have access to hands-on activities in advance of and after Girl Day for continued exploration, design, and creation. Participants will be able to share their designs and creations and engineering solutions on Flipgrid as part of an activity showcase. See the Brazen links to the right for more information about this browser-based platform (no downloads required). 

High school programming includes 10+ enewsletters sent throughout virtual Girl Day from Monday, February 22 through Sunday, March 7. Participants may join in webinars and film screenings throughout the week.

Adult Participation Required

Girl Day is a chaperoned event. Online systems are designed for a student to participate with their teacher or family or other adult. Registrants will be asked to verify they are not a minor before being able to access our virtual system with their student(s). 

Making STEM Connections

While we have lots of volunteers to help lead activities, we encourage you to help your participants make the connection to engineering, to help them question their activity designs (without leading them or doing it for them), and being a positive force encouraging them to see what they can do with math and science! Failure is part of the process and our volunteers can share their struggles and encourage the participants to work through challenges. 

WEP will share more STEM connections, STEM activity resources, upcoming STEM events and more with all registrants for Girl Day. Make sure you register to receive all the information! Those interested in high school programming should visit the high school programming page for more information and registration links.
