This year’s branch STEM project, arranged through Saturday Academy and the Girl Scouts, is well underway. AAUW members are providing the adult supervision to teen girls who are teaching simple computer programming to younger girls in the "GET" (Girls Engaged in Technology) program created and developed by branch member Barbara Miner. The computer software used is called “Scratch”, a kid-friendly, graphics-based, development platform. “Scratch” allows girls to dream up, design and program cool interactive scenes, build cartoons, invitations, greeting cards and even add sounds. Contact Lisa Perrine or Sue Thomas if you are interested in participating.
