Upcoming Workshops:

Becoming Urban Planners 

grades 3rd/4th

Take on the job of an urban planner by designing your dream city which meets the needs of your residents! What does your city look like? What does it need to provide? How many people can it house? We will draw out maps and blueprints, develop 3-D models of buildings, and consider how our city and its residents will make money. Bring your creativity- your city is up to you!

Becoming Data Scientists

grades 7th/8th

(registration closed)

We can tell important stories by creating graphs and we can learn about key relationships by reading graphs. Throughout the week we will become empowered data scientists who aren’t afraid to call out a misleading graph or confidently share a personal story through data. Each day, we will analyze a new set of real-world data and try our hands at presenting meaningful data concerning real world issues we care about.

What parents are saying:

"Just wanted to say thank you for the classes. [She] is loving them and it is so nice to have something regularly scheduled each day that she looks forward to!"

"She just adored her Girls Count workshops – the work, the community, and you!  Both her father and I enjoy math and are so pleased that she is carrying on the tradition."

"She loves the workshop. I heard her saying to a friend 'who knew math could be so fun'. We definitely want to keep going even after she’s back in the actually classroom! [My daughter] having a better relationship with math could be one of the good things that could come from all this craziness."
