First day of my internship at green light for girls! It went really well. The team is very friendly, open and welcoming. I learned how they manage to reach so many people through social media to bring them all together and create such huge and fun events!
STEM: Επιστήμη για. Κορίτσια
What a wonderful start to our collaboration with Herakleidon Museum in Athens, Greece!
Here at greenlight for girls, we’re thrilled to be a part of something big… something exciting… something that will surely make some noise! A strong partnership with greenlight for girls and Cisco has led us to this day when we could not be more proud to announce the first ever g4g Day event in Spain in the charming city of Barcelona this Spring!
On April 25th, the 5th annual g4g Day@Southcoast was hosted by the Kaput Center for Research & Innovation in STEM Education at UMass Dartmouth. A day of science and technology for girls aged 10-15 brought 150 students from SouthCoast schools and each young greenlight girls got to attend two workshops for the day out of a number of cool themes that make us wonder… how do they manage to choose only two?! Workshops included:“Math in How You Move”; “Imagineering Engineering”; “Engineering a Robot to Solve a Rubik’s Cube”...
What can we do to encourage more girls to enter the world of Information and Communication Technology? Girls should be able to experience the IT world first hand, in an interactive work environment – to be able to see, touch, hear and be inspired by the possibilities their future holds – and it all begins at an early age.
On April 1st 2015, 34 greenlight girls aged 10-15 joined Cisco and g4g in pioneering an amazing initiative we’re calling “g4g@work”...
We have learned that inspiration has no limits. Once again, our scholarship girls in India have shared with us their passion for learning and for science - so much, it makes us wish we were university students again too!
In January this year, we had an amazing opportunity with our greenlight children in India....
Saturday, November 29th marked the 5th annual greenlight for girls Day, our signature event, at the International School of Brussels - and we’re still on ‘up in the clouds’ thinking what an amazing day it was filled with broken records, fun science workshops and fantastic STEM role models. Greenlight for girls continues to grow exponentially in geography and reach with more than 75 events across 5 continents, engaging 1.200 volunteers worldwide and now reaching more than 10,000 students! This year’s event brought forth 210 greenlight girls from 39 different schools, 105 volunteers and workshop leaders and 16 different organizations...
On October 31st (Yep - Halloween!) New York's science educators & g4g's Project Manager, Andrea Urmston, at Circleville Elementary lead what was an inspiring event for all classrooms to follow. Her words describe it best:
What do you get when you take the following and mix well: 87 eager 5th graders in pajamas, 6 enthusiastic teachers (also in pajamas), 4 transformed classrooms, notebooks and glow sticks, and HALLOWEEN?...
Over the years, our interns have impressed us & inspired us and continue to do so! This summer, among many, we have had two special young ladies, Catriona and Charlotte. During their time with us, they perfected our "Bath Bombs" experiment and took charge of our Science Libraries project by preparing a diverse batch of science books, with a special note in each, for shipment to South Africa! These two have been participating in our workshops during the g4g day in Brussels for three years now! At just 14 & 15 years old, their hope is to become more involved by, for example, becoming volunteers in the next event! Our response: why not become a workshop leader instead! The girls LOVED the idea and we loved having them with us! Read their testimonies below...
"For a couple of years now I've been dreaming of becoming an engineer..."
I once heard that the average person produces 200 times more information nowadays than 25 years ago.
I have to admit I dismissed that idea quite fast because ironically, it was just “yet-another-information” I had to process in a world of constant information bombardment.
But I think I finally grasp it. And more importantly, I think I finally grasp why.
We live in a world where everything is changing; everyone aspires to create, to innovate and do more, better and faster. Yes, this brings renew into my life and keeps me constantly curious, but sometimes there is just too much. Gradually, I end up missing out some of the great things that have been happening because they haven’t been targeted directly to me or because they haven’t been bolded enough to stand out in the ocean of facts!...
