Would your young daughter benefit from a program designed to stimulate interest and knowledge in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math?
San Jose Public Library is partering with Girl Scouts of Northern California to provide such a program at six library branches in November and December. In "Girls Go Tech: Movie Chemistries," the girls will create movie special effects acting as chemical engineers in the prop department. They'll make paint, explosions, and slime in the workshop, which is being presented as a single three-hour program at some library branches and as a series of three one-hour programs at other libraries.
The Girl Scouts' Girls Go Tech website cites National Science Foundation statistics indicating that women represent 46% of the total workforce yet only 25% of the technology workforce and 10% of the nation’s top technological jobs. The Girls Go Tech Initiative encourages girls to develop an early interest in math, science and technology and to maintain that interest as they mature and enter the workforce.
The Movie Chemistries program is open to all girls in K-4th grade. Space is limited, so please be sure to call or visit the library ahead of time to preregister.
