Girls Inc. Eureka!

Dr. Teuscher taught a 3-day Girls Inc. Eureka! cohort. Activities included Scratch, slime mold, cellular automata, and squishy circuits.

Eureka! is a five year Girls Inc. program that brings 8th – 12th grade girls, including many who will be first generation college applicants, onto local college and university campuses for an intensive STEM summer program.”
