Girl power fuels creative STEM projects

Posted

From space to water and everything in between, about 50 girls worked throughout February on their innovative projects for the Girls in STEM competition.

The judging took place Feb. 22 at the Golden Library, and the winner will be announced during the International Women’s Day Luncheon on March 8.

The competition was open to any middle school girl in STEM, and 18 projects were presented. They included studies on nutrition, disease, solar power and water filtration.

Judging the competition were Emma May, Bethel Tessema and Shelly Konopka, who are students in Colorado School of Mines’ DECTech, an outreach program designed to engage young girls in STEM subjects.
