The Lavender Spaceship Project offers a "girl-centric" STEM curriculum for 7-16 year old girls. At every age group, we focus on the factors that are required to foster an interest for STEM among girls in a holistic way.
These programs are offered year round via online sessions. These sessions are conducted in small groups via Zoom or Google Meet. Each course typically takes 3-6 months to complete. Our instructors move at the pace of the students taking time to reinforce concepts as needed. All courses feature fun projects that include women role models in STEM to inspire and motivate the girls.
We also encourage our girls to become independent learners by giving them small practice tasks that they can do at home.
To ensure progress, there are multiple checkpoints in each course wherein we assess the understanding of concepts covered in class. Parents are kept updated on their girl's progress throughout. Assessments are done in the form of quizzes or independent mini projects. There are two areas that we assess:
Knowledge: This will be done with a multiple choice quiz typically at the end of a module. The quiz results are sent to parents via email.
Application: The girls are given mini projects that they have to complete independently by applying what they have learned in class. We review these and provide positive feedback so the girls can be proud of their work.
The girls will receive Certificates of Completion after each module.
