Anneliese Gegenheimer is a former IBM computer scientist who has a passion for engaging girls in STEM based activities. She has set up a non-profit for this in her hometown of Chicago. Anneliese is currently studying at Johns Hopkins in Nanjing and will be leading a session 3 ASA for our girls in Grades 4 and 5.
Here are the details of the ASA:
ASA Title: NIS Girls InventASA Description:Do you like solving problems? This after school activity is for the community of 4th and 5th grade girls who like finding creative solutions to problems in their community and are interested in learning more about the invention process. Students will work individually or in small teams to create a prototype and pitch their ideas!Venue: PYP Design PitMax # of Students: 25Grade/s: 4th and 5th grade girlsDay of Week: Friday
We are looking for mentors. We want six women who can come and support the ASA for one session each (of course, you can come more often). Anneliese is leading the ASA and I am supporting her, but we would love to have more hands on deck and are asking for you to volunteer 60 minutes of your time. No prep needed, just show up with enthusiasm.
