"STEM GIRLS"... Really?

STEM GIRLS is sort of the working name for the club, but maybe that will change at the 2nd Meeting of the total group. I would like to invite you to the second meeting of the Highland Girl's STEM Club. You are on the list... either for attending the first meeting or making sure that someone put your name on this exclusive list. Either way we would love to see you on Thursday, April16th, and we would like for YOU to be part of our plans.

The Plan

The Girls at the High School have had a chance to get together and lay out some things that need to be decided on. Now it is time to have the entire group get together, cast a few votes and begin to make plans for the rest of the year, this summer and even for next year.


We will NOT be ordering dinner as a club, but meeting at a restaurant after events seemed to work out well. So feel free to show up when you can, and if you have not eaten dinner yet , order on your way in and come on back. (You pay your own bill this time.)


We will show up at 6:30pm and have a short social similar to last time and get started by 7pm. The HS girls will explain what they have been up to, and put a few items up for vote. A guest speaker is in the works.


Getting a head count for girls attending the Six Flags Physics Day will be a major objective for this meeting. Please discuss it with your parents and start saving your $35.

Dinner is on you this time - fun is on us!

This meeting is by invitation only and this time, an RSVP is NOT required but still appreciated. We will NOT be ordering dinner as a club, but meeting at a restaurant after events seemed to work out well.

FIELD TRIP INFORMATION

Check your calendar for April 24th and discuss with your parents what you might have to miss to join us for an exciting day of learning at Six Flags over Mid America. The Highland Girls STEM club will be leaving from the High School Teachers lot at 7:30 am and will return around 7:00pm Friday night. We will be participating in Physics Challenges in small groups and having a great time while learning new things. The cost will be $35 per student or parent and that will cover the cost of the Ticket and a share of the bus cost. (We will be looking for sponsors to pick up the rest of the bus cost.) The girls decided that lunch would be a "Pot Luck". Bring a sandwich or something to eat for yourself and a side dish to share with other girls. (A bag of chips, veggies, fruit, pudding, ect.) The Club will ice up drinks and have them available for lunch.
PLEASE - Talk with your parents now about this trip so you have an idea about whether you can attend or not at the meeting on Thursday night. We have to get tickets ordered in advance. Use the link above if you want to see more information on the Physics Day at Six Flags.

Hope you can make it!
