Among the reasons to celebrate Pretty Brilliant, our new workshop in lighting design and engineering design thinking, girls tell us they are comfortable asking questions and asking for help. In this post we highlight outcomes of the program’s first four weeks, including how we’re building a STEAM community on which girls can rely.
Our new workshop, Pretty Brilliant, is an opportunity for girls in high school and middle school to learn how designers design and why engineering may be a girl’s best tool for making the world a better place. Registration is open, and space is available for 15 girls in middle school and 15 in high school. Sign up online today!
Today is Colorado Gives Day, a time when nonprofit organizations ask for your contribution. On this day Pretty Brainy asks that your donation be an investment of time in your daughter. Our recommendation? Math games girls and parents can tackle together. Here’s something perfect for ages 10 – 13.
Math Is Beautiful. At least it can be when it has a purpose beyond homework and that purpose makes sense in life! If you like to go shopping, you will like the following math game. If you need practice converting fractions to decimals, you are going to love it — or at least appreciate it!
#ChangeThePattern is an initiative that highlights the need to change the pattern of too few girls engaging STEAM. The movement promotes understanding of STEAM and the diverse thinking and problem-solving that females bring to each discipline. Purchases of art from the initiative will benefit Pretty Brainy through Jan. 1, 2015.
