Blandford Nature Center, the Lower Grand River Organization of Watersheds (LGROW), and Trout Unlimited's Great Lakes Program (TU) are excited to offer STREAM Girls, a watershed-based education program for girls ages 10-12 (ideally entering grades 5-7 in the fall). The program employs STEM education (science, technology, engineering, math) plus recreation and arts to explore a local watershed. During the program, girls assess a community stream, sample macroinvertebrates, journal and sketch their experiences, tie a fishing fly, and learn to cast a fly rod, ultimately providing the girls with an introduction to STEM in a fun, meaningful, and supportive way. The program instills in participants an interest in science and a confidence in STEM-related learning while also connecting them to their community’s watershed. Through STREAM Girls, Blandford, TU, and LGROW hope to foster young women who are more interested in science and math and are mindful stewards of their community’s water resources.
This session of STREAM Girls for will take place from 1:00 - 4:00 pm, Monday through Thursday at Blandford Nature Center. Friday's optional program will take place from 10 am to 12 PM at Pickerel Lake Park in Cannonsburg, Michigan (northeast of Grand Rapids). Participants' families are responsible for transportation to and from Pickerel Lake Park on Friday. Participants are not required to attend on Friday and will still be considered to have completed the curriculum if they cannot attend on Friday.
Cost: $50 per participant
