The Orinda-Moraga-Lafayette Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) presents "Stem Fitness for Adults" on Tuesday January 17, 2017 at the Orinda Community Church, 10 Irwin Way, Orinda, CA, from 9:30 to 11:30.
So what’s all the excitement about STEM? Do you ever think that maybe the middle school girls, for whom a number of STEM programs have been developed to increase competitiveness in science and technology development, are the only ones having all the fun? As our March 2017 Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) STEM Conference at Saint Mary’s College, Moraga, draws near, and we take applications for Tech Trek Camps at local universities this summer, we thought it was time for us all (regardless of age) to have some fun.
Come to AAUW-OML “STEM Fitness for Adults” and see for yourself why the girls are having such a good time. Design a bridge that won’t collapse under its own weight, solve the unsolvable Insanity Block Puzzle by trial and error or pen and paper, race a mousetrap car or find out why geometry really is fun.
We will have a special guest speaker to explain it all to us, and you will have a chance to do a little coding of your own to produce a binary friendship bracelet. This is our chance to learn about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics), socialize and play. See you there!
