Other AAUW-Lincoln Events During 2019-20

Three STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) workshops in collaboration with Southeast Community College (SCC), Department of Arts and Sciences, to address STEAM and how girls are influenced to make career decisions:

  • Tech Fair:  Professionals and educators will present various workshops to expose, engage, and encourage students to pursue STEAM fields (SCC-Milford)
  • Professional Development on Mindset:  Will train instructors on what mindset is and to educate them on encouraging students to persevere through their studies and not give up due to a few bad grades (all SCC campuses)
  • Community Outreach on Mindset:  Conducted similar to the Professional Development Mindset workshop, this one will inform public school teachers and counselors about their contributions to students’ mindsets

 We hope you will join us at our October 12 luncheon
