About

SELF is collaborating with SciGirls (tpt TV) on a two year project to improve best practices for gender equitable learning in STEM. (STEAM) We introduce students to professionals who can share their own stories about their professional paths. We would like to find women in STEM fields who could visit with these students for one session after-school during the fall of 2018. We are located in Minneapolis, MN. If you have qualms about speaking with young people about what you do, don't worry. We have training available online to help you with your presentation. We call our program SciKids. A majority of the students are Latina, so it would be wonderful if we could find women who could relate specifically to these girls, but it is not required.

We call it STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Math) for our program. That includes an A for art. If you are in a creative field which combines science and art we would love to hear from you, too. We are also open to the possibility of a cyber chat with mentors who may be too far away to attend in person.
