A STEM Program for Girls

The OACHE has been working with schools in the region to develop STEM programs and activities, as well as P-16 councils.

After attending meetings yesterday with regional schools discussing some of those very topics, I came back to the office to see an article on a STEM program that is targeting girls.

Project IT Girl is a Texas program that foster’s young women’s interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).  The program was started with a grant from the National Science Foundation.

Since the use of technology and social networks expands more everyday, we decided to "test the waters" with our own pages in the social network arena.

We don’t have a lot posted yet, but you can find OACHE on YouTube as well as Facebook

We have some past videos and a few videos currently being produced that we’ll be posting soon, but if you have suggestions of something you’d like to see or hear about, or perhaps a video clip of your own you would like us to post on our site, let us know.
