Our team is currently putting together STEM activities that students can virtually engage in on the first Friday of every month! Each month we will have one new experiment and lesson to keep the fun going!
SiS began as an annual event in 2018. Hosted in the Saguaro High School cafeteria, Sisters in STEM invites elementary and middle school girls to take part in activities and demonstrations in every STEM discipline to showcase STEM and how much fun it can be.
Now, with a $5,000 grant awarded through the AZ Diamondbacks School Challenge program, Sisters in STEM will go on the road. The "SiS Roadshow" will bring the demonstrations and activities from SiS to outlying communities.
Sisters in STEM is an organization dedicated to helping young girls get involved in STEM through our efforts. Our goal is to help young women see that not only is STEM something that they can go into for their futures, but that it can be really fun!
Sisters in STEM was begun in 2018 by three forward-thinking students from Saguaro High School's Sabercat Robotics team. The founders, Eli Arnold, Kayli Battel, and Laney Olson, chose to create the event Sisters in STEM in order to give young women the opportunity to see the benefits that STEM could provide for them. The founders worked with Scottsdale Community College to create their own event in the name of STEM and show these girls the possibilities that Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math could give them!
We are extremely grateful for our partners in putting on Sisters in STEM! This event would not have been possible without many ardent supporters. Thank you to
This year our Sisters in STEM event was held virtually on zoom to ensure the safety of all while still reaching girls in our community! In addition, our new monthly events will also occur on zoom.
In addition, with young students online more than ever, we knew that an understanding of Cybersecurity in today's world is a necessity.
To address potential dangers on the internet, Saguaro High School Math and Science Academy students created the K-6 Sisters in STEM CyberPatriot Outreach Initiative, or CyberSiS.
