Our January AAUW general meeting featured Kimberly Duvall who has taught informal science education for over 15 years. She taught mostly in zoos and aquariums before working at the Arizona Science Center (ASC) in 2021. Her current role at ASC is Girls in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) coordinator where she plans and facilitates STEM programs. Kim discussed the ASC’s programs, focusing on STEM programs for girls 4th through 8th grade. There are a variety of programs and events. For details, check out their website azscience.org.
Our group enjoyed playing a little financial awareness bingo. Kim explained that, besides bingo, girls participate in robot programming and group problem solving exercises. In March the ASC will be hosting a STEM careers program featuring Dr. Jessie Rach, a local biologist. The evening was informative and fun!
