Promoting STEM education for girls in grades 6-9

Middle and high school students from Minerva Local and East Canton attended the “Tech Savvy Girls” workshop held Saturday, April 25th at Stark State College. Tech Savvy prepares girls to be a scientists, engineers, or technology experts. A special session for parents and families demonstrated how to encourage young women on their path to college and a career.

This experience enriched the middle school curriculum and problem-based learning (PBL) at both districts. For example, the 7th grade STEM class in East Canton, taught by Michelle Peterson and work-based learning opportunities in science, lead by department head, Stacey Peters, at Minerva High School.  Both teachers also attended the event as well as the districts’ curriculum team leader, Becky Miller.

"We are grateful to all three organizations for making this possible for the girls, as this (grades six through nine) is an impressionable age," stated Becky Miller.

The event was funded by the Aluminum Company of America Foundation and presented by American Association for University Women (AAUW). Stark State College, a partner with both schools through the Young Entrepreneurs Consortium sponsored the event.

Author Becky Miller is a Stark County Educational Service Center employee serving Minerva and Osnaburg Local School Districts as Title I Coordinator and Curriculum Team Leader.  She has worked in Carroll and Stark County as educator and administrator for over 20 years.
