In accordance with Virginia Executive Order to stay at home all of our scheduled in-person programs (Saturday & After-School) are postponed until further notice.
In an effort to provide a little bit of support during this odd time we've scheduled a range of digital content that we hope will help everyone as we venture into this new world of distance learning and homeschooling.
The core of Rosie Riveters’ programs is a project-based, after-school curriculum for girls aged 4-14 (grades pre-K-8) that is open to the public and is completely free of charge. Each project features:
an interactive overview of a STEM concept (density, circuits, chemical reactions, etc.);
a tangible and hands-on project that explores that concept;
exploration of real-world careers associated with the above project through interaction with mentors.
The hands-on projects at the core of our program teach STEM skills, encourage girls to develop their own creative processes for design and implementation, and enable them to see their skills in action. All these elements work together to develop each participant’s confidence in her abilities.
