The most recent addition to our science offerings is to our young girls. One of our seniors, Ellie Kim, along with her sister, alumna Leslie Kim, created a curriculum to offer an after school science program to our 4th-6th grade girls. “Girls in Science” is a 6-week program which teaches science lessons to approximately 40 of our young ladies who signed on for this enrichment program. They are meeting on Thursdays after school for two hours and are half way through the program. The girls seem to be having a great time learning fascinating things.
The six weeks of lessons include architecture, chemistry, molecular science, computer science, neuroscience, and aerospace engineering. The girls are learning about women like Marie Curie (physicist and double nobel prize winner), Rosalind Franklin (chemist), and Neri Oxman (architect), to name a few. After a biography lesson, the girls have a snack and a little time to play while experiments are set up. Yesterday, it was tossing the football around with Mr. Richardson!
Lab experiments include making lava lamps, slime and building towers. Labs include developing hypotheses and forming conclusions.
Girls in Science is an exciting addition to Trinity. Here are a few photos.
