STEAHM Summer Workshop
August 2-6, 2021 @ SUNY Corning Community College
Full STEAHM Ahead!
The STEAHM Summer Workshop was a week-long program at SUNY Corning Community College for area middle school girls focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Health, and Math education.
This program is designed to increase STEM confidence by showing students the connections between fields and giving them positive women role models. During the week on the campus of Corning Community College 28 girls attended workshops on STEAHM (science, technology, engineering, arts, health, and math), participate in a career panel featuring women in a variety of STEAHM fields, and experience college life with campus tours, cafeteria dining, and a student information panel.
Middle school is often the time at which all students, but especially girls, choose between the arts and the sciences. According to stereotype research, many girls choose not to pursue STEM education despite their aptitude. At SUNY Corning Community College we see a gender gap in the STEM fields.
Workshop topics included:
- 3 Dimensional Design
- Fibonacci Sequence (math)
- And many others!
