S.T.A.R.S. (Students Tackling Authentic and Relevant Science) is an after-school all girl’s science club that provides authentic scientific inquiry investigation experiences that relate to real-world problems. The program highlights a strong social justice issue of females in science, and promotes the opportunity for 7th to 9th grade female students to participate as and realize they are scientists. This program will take place in Rochester, NY at East High School.
We are trying out a new curriculum this year, using the Urban EcoLab curriculum developed by Boston College.
