Are you looking for a way to encourage your daughter to pursue their interest and love of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM)? It can be confusing for parents to know how to effectively support their daughter’s STEAM learning.
So why not get some guidance from the very people who know best what works?
Yes, we’re talking about inspiring young women with a passion for STEAM.
Three of them, Sonia Dhingra, Sarah Luan, and Anagha Gouru, have come together to create a one-of-a-kind STEAM journal called the Girls Do STEAM Journal. The resource equips parents of pre-K-6th grade aged girls with the knowledge and guidance they need to proactively support their daughters’ STEAM education.
“Our goal is to inspire all young girls to grow their Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) mindsets,” the pioneering Greenhill School high school juniors explain. “We want to let parents know about this resource and the opportunity they have to help us help girls’ education by supporting our work.”
Sonia, Sarah, and Anagha were motivated to create the journal after learning about the comparatively lower numbers of women pursuing careers in STEAM as well as the lack of high-quality STEAM learning materials. “We know that the younger that girls develop mindsets that allow them to embrace their STEAM identities and ask lots of questions, the better for everyone,” they explain on their website.
“If you visit Barnes and Noble or look through Amazon, there are plenty of journals for girls that focus on dreams, gratitude, building confidence, expressing yourself, and so on. Yet, none have to do with fostering STEAM.”
The Girls Do STEAM Journal features:
- An introduction and guide to STEAM, including STEAM Lingo, How to Spot a Great “STEAMer”, and examples of STEAM in everyday life.
- 50 Quick and Fun STEAM Challenges, which are quick, fun activities you can do in the park, at home, in the car, or a number of places you are in on a regular basis.
- Reflection pages with prompts to help you reflect on the many ways that you have used your STEAM mindset during the week.
- Examples of women in STEAM.
If that wasn’t reason enough to pick up a copy, it’s worth keeping in mind that 100% of the proceeds of the journal will go to after-school STEAM programming for underprivileged girls.
The Girls Do STEAM Journal can be purchased from the Girls do STEAM website for only $13.95 each.
