SciGirls® Summer Virtual Workshops at CNM - July 27 - 21, 2020 Times TBD

SciGirls virtual summer workshops are designed for your students to have an in-depth “camp” experience without leaving your home.

  • Take advantage of this opportunity for middle school students to engage their curiosity in a fun, interactive online environment facilitated by CNM faculty members.
  • Meet local STEM professional and learn about how STEM helps people solve problems, achieve goals, and help others.

All activities have associated materials kits that will be mailed out ahead of the program along with detailed instructions.

In partnership with New Mexico PBS, and with funding from Intel, CNM is excited to provide a week long STEM-focused summer workshop for students ages 10-13.

SciGirls® Summer Virtual Workshops will introduce science, technology, engineering, mathematics and career and technical education to students though a series of activities. Participants will work collaboratively, through Zoom video conferencing, to investigate meaningful questions and carry-out experiments. You’ll design heart-pumping experiments to measure the effects of exercise on your heart and lungs, use your creativity and knowledge of circuits to design a light-up craft, and even engineer your own mechanical arm.

All students will need a computer with internet access, speakers and a microphone (webcams are suggested, but not required), a tablet, or a mobile device to attend live Zoom sessions


Participation in Structured and Unstructured Out-of-School Time (OST) Activities -  Tuesday, August 18, 2020 @ 11am MT

What types of STEM activities are today’s youth participating in outside of school? The informal science community can easily document enrollment in structured activities, yet less is known about participation in non-structured activities like hobbies, reading science fiction, and online experiences, including games and social media. The Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian (CfA) surveyed over 15,000 college students in introductory college English classes nationally - a mixture of students in STEM and non-STEM majors - about their participation in a variety of precollege structured STEM activities (both in person and online) including group organizations, like Scouts, lectures or talks, and internships, and non-structured activities, like tinkering, stargazing, and watching online STEM videos. Join NGCP on August 18th to find out which activities are particularly attractive to young women and underrepresented minorities.
