Day of Week:
NCAA Core Course Status:
Rising Stargirls was created by Dr. Aomawa Shields, Founder and Director of the Rising Stargirls organization. She is also an Astrophysicist at the University of California in Irvine, and a former TED Talk Speaker. Dr. Shields is committed to the idea that there is no one way to be a scientist.
By integrating creative strategies such as free writing, visual arts, role-playing, and theater exercises, a new, innovative astronomy curriculum that addresses each girl as a whole person provides an avenue for individual self-expression and personal exploration.
This is interwoven with scientific engagement and discovery. Many of the activities come from other programs and are reprinted in the accompanying workbook with permission from those programs. Others were created by the Rising Stargirls organization.
Although this workshop was created for middle-school girls, it is also open to male students as well.
NOTE: This class must reach the minimum of five students by August 20th to run. If we do not reach this minimum, parents will be notified via email.
