growing girls labWe are excited to announce that the  Growing Lab Girls toolkit is now available for you to use!
The toolkit consists of a menu of activities related to English Language Arts, Science, and Engineering. There are 5 sections:
1.What is Science?
2.Lab Girls
3.Plants
4.Communicating Science through Social Media
5.Photography and Writing Contests
Our hope is that teachers will use the menu options throughout the school year. And our goal is to get girls to think more deeply about the nature of science, reflect on themselves as scientists, and express their science-related ideas and questions. We want them to understand that science is a process of inquiry and not a search for the “right” answer. Science is a constant search for meaning and we invite students to participate in this effort by grappling with real data that current scientists have gathered and are working with.
You can learn more about Growing Lab Girls and access the kit and the contest that goes with it by heading over to this link! We hope that you will use this free resource and you can always let us know how you are doing by posting pictures and tagging us on social media!
 

Share and Enjoy !
