I am so pleased to be involved with AAUW. I am currently volunteering my time to go into 6th grade classrooms and try to inspire kids ( especially girls) to pursue careers in the STEM field. I received a grant from my state ( MO) to do this program. We( 3 of us) dress up as important women who have contributed to the fields of Math or Science. I portray Rear Admiral Grace Hopper , Grandmother of Computers. I also have Dr. Barbara McClintock a Nobel Winning geneticist, Dr. Eugenia Clark, The shark Lady, and Miss Maria Mitchell.....1st American Astronomer. The evaluations that the 6th grade students are so totally inspiring..................we touch lives.....all volunteer work.
