Girls in STEM, LLC Founded by Local Student, Offering Scholarship and Sponsor Opportunities
Girls grades 5th–11th in Baldwin County who are interested in attending a STEM-themed summer camp/program are invited to apply for a Girls in STEM, LLC scholarship. Girls in STEM, LLC was started by local Robertsdale High School student Olivia Ryan, who is a junior in the STEM Academy at Robertsdale. Olivia had the opportunity to attend a neuroscience program at Duke University last summer, and recognizes that not all girls are able to attend such camps due to financial barriers. In turn, she decided to create Girls in STEM as a way to give back to the community. Girls in STEM will be accepting applications from local girls through May 24th. Each winner will be provided with funds to attend the approved STEM program/camp of their choice. Once awarded, Girls in STEM, LLC will work directly with the chosen program or camp to ensure the funds are applied to that participant’s camp costs. The goal is to send as many girls to summer camps as possible. To apply visit https://forms.gle/t7mDuv3joj62u32CA or email GirlsInSTEMScholarship@gmail.com. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or contributing to the scholarship program, please send an email to GirlsInSTEMScholarship@gmail.com. Pictured: Olivia Ryan, founder of Girls in STEM, LLC

J Larry Newton students Enjoy New STEAM Materials
J Larry Newton students are enjoying the new STEAM materials their Library Media Specialist, Terri Frank, and their STEAM teacher, Kylee Henseler, recently acquired with the help of the Fairhope Educational Enrichment Foundation. Last year, the school focused on fostering interest in the STEAM fields by introducing their students to hydroponic gardening and chicken egg incubation. Building on that interest, the students are learning to work through the Engineering Design Process themselves during their STEAM activities this year. Mrs. Frank wrote a FEEF grant for 33 picture book biographies that tell the stories of how everyday items, like Monopoly and Ramen Noodles, were invented. The students spent 6 weeks researching and learning about various inventions and the growth mindset their inventors had to get their inventions from an idea, through the entire Engineering Design Process, to mass production and sales. One of the inventions the students learned about was the Slinky. After learning how Slinky became a household item, students had the opportunity to work through their own design process building stairs and inclines to test out the original Slinkies! Newton students have shown so much interest in the engineering field this year that Mrs. Henseler wrote a FEEF grant to purchase more KEVA planks and sets of KEVA Engineering Challenge Cards for the students. JLN students have loved creating and designing architectural pieces, all while developing spatial awareness and working through the engineering design process. The KEVA building club is very popular this year!
