We are needing STEM leaders who will present hands-on experiences related to their own work, in order to enthuse rising eighth-grade girls about the leaders' careers or research. Thus, they would design the curriculum, but I’d be happy to discuss it with them. For the week-long core classes, we have curriculum for two classes, app writing and cybersecurity (for which we need teachers, too), but any others would be designed by the teacher. This will take place at NMT in Socorro.
