Growing Lab Girls
Inspired by Dr. Jahren’s interviews and memoir, Lab Girl, this toolkit has been created to provide powerful messages about the universal relevance of science to each and every one of us.
We present a peek into the unique experiences of 3 other women scientists and an opportunity for students to examine their personal relationships with science. We hope that this resource will serve as a toolkit for grades 7-12 teachers who want to deepen the conversation with the young women in their English, Science, Mathematics, and Engineering classes.
This toolkit consists of a menu of activities related to English Language Arts, Science, and Engineering. There are 5 sections: What is Science?, Lab Girls, Plants, Communicating Science through Social Media, and Photography and Writing Contests. We hope that teachers will use the menu options throughout the school year. 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.

Create Your Own walkSTEM® Teacher Guides
This detailed guide walks elementary, middle and high school teachers through planning worksheets, tech tools such as flipgrid and edpuzzle that teachers may like to use with talkSTEM videos to introduce sample videos, specific videos that we recommend you watch with students, sample discussion questions, rubrics and everything you will need to use this innovative and engaging method of teaching with your class. Children of all ages can get creative, relate it to any math, science, STEM, or STEAM curricular content you are using. This is great for a short project or a longer one. It is also great as a project for out of school learning.
