As one of the premier providers of environmental education on the Palouse, PCEI is always looking for new and creative ways to get people of all ages out and exploring the natural world.
That is why this year, we are pleased to offer STREAM Team—a week-long summer experience for girls entering their 7th-10th grade years that focuses on the STREAM fields: Science, Technology, Restoration, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.
Coordinated and led by a team of female PCEI instructors, this program will feature outdoor application experiences with female community mentors who are professionals in the STREAM fields. They will share with us their journeys through STREAM—how they overcame the gender disparity in these fields and how their work helps the environment.
What do STREAM Team participants do?
Monday: Introductions, icebreakers, team building, and intentional community creation. Exploration, reflection and processing tool building with local writer and professor, Dr. Linda Russo from WSU.
Tuesday: Science and Technology field experiences. Hang with Dr. Lisa Shipley and her deer at the WSU Ungulate Research Facility. Next, learn how technology helps us in wildlife research by putting it into use in the field! + group and personal debrief
Wednesday: Restoration and Engineering field experiences with female role models in the field like PCEI’s Jenna Putnam and Decagon’s Jennifer Ostvig.
Thursday: Arts and Mathematics field experiences with female role models in the field (parks/nature preserves in the region) + group and personal debrief
Friday: Closing STREAM Team reflections, share outs, and celebrations with mentors!
