STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. And STEAM is very similar, but it includes the arts.
Project Latina STEAM is a 6 week long program where we have STEAM lessons with Latinas in Mexico. The age group is 9-12.
Some of our students are from the school we partnered with, Lázaro Cárdenas, which is in Tijuana. We also have other students from Mexico in our Project Latina STEAM classes who go to different schools.
We have projects with instructions that students have access to if they want to ever look back on them. Our lessons are taught through Zoom, except for the times when Juliette is able to drive across the boarder to teach in person. Some of our lessons include bottle rockets, coding, kaleidoscopes, Mexican suns, and an engineering challenge!
With the lesson types and projects that we have, we have noticed the best impactful response with girls ages 9-12.
