2013 Stellar Girls Teacher Workshop

This week the iBIO Institute EDUCATE Center held their 2013 Stellar Girls Teacher Workshop at Northeastern Illinois University, activities focused on feeding, fueling, healing, and saving the world.

Stellar Girls is a new program focused on inspiring girls’ interest in STEM fields, funded by the Astellas Foundation. Stellar Girls introduces girls in grades 4 through 8 to current, interesting “Big Ideas” in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. Through the program, students have the opportunity to interact with STEM professionals and other volunteers to learn about STEM careers, apply STEM skills to real-world problems and employ critical thinking skills through team collaboration. For more information on Stellar Girls and some of the other great STEM initiatives at the iBIO Institute EDUCATE Center, visit: http://www.ibioed.org

The iBIO Institute EDUCATE programs are developed and led by Ann Reed and Karen Lindebrekke.
