As part of a partnership with CU's Experiential Science Education Research Collaborative (Xsci), Timberline teachers have collaborated with local STEM professionals to develop projects for middle schoolers. 8th graders at Timberline PK-8 are working on a career exploration project. Monthly guest speakers who work in STEM-related fields come to school to talk about different career opportunities and the multiple pathways to attain them. Several of the guests have opted to return on other days to help students work on their projects. Highlights from the presentations include the benefits and risks of engineering DNA, the importance of trade skills and having a back up plan, and the challenges of being female in a male-dominated career field. Next month, the school will host a special session with three female engineers exclusively to encourage girls to go into engineering.
