Golden Ring Middle School’s girls engaged in hands-on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) team activities and met women working in STEM fields during a daylong event at the school on Thursday, October 11, 2012.  The event was designed to inspire student interest in STEM studies and careers. A similar event for boys at Golden Ring Middle will be held in May 2013.

During their STEM day, the girls participated in two 30-minute long challenges. One challenge was to construct a floating device that could hold the greatest amount of weight, and the other was to build a case that would protect an egg from breaking if dropped. As the girls worked, STEM professionals and students from Overlea High interacted with the students, posed questions to test their thinking, and encouraged their completion of the projects. 

An awards event is scheduled, and the teams with the most innovative and successful designs will receive medals.
