deSTEMber on Google+

The twelfth month of the year is deSTEMber! Over at one of my favorite places on the internet, Google+, we’re celebrating the month of December in style! deSTEMber has been an initiative of GirlStart, out of Austin, TX to engage, celebrate and fascinate everyone in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). In 2012, GirlStart partnered with Google Science Fair to spearhead a campaign over at Google+, bringing another layer of fascinating content for all to enjoy and participate in! It’s not only GirlStart and Google Science fair that’s involved, either. CERN, National Geographic, Scientific American, The San Diego Zoo, Accuweather.com, and CosmoQuest have partnered up with this amazing way of reaching out to the public to get everyone excited about STEM via Google+! Fascinating Hangouts On Air are being held the entire month and will be archived here, as well as the GirlStart website on their calendar.

deSTEMber Experiment with 2011 Google Science Fair Finalist

“Join +Google Science Fair 2011 Finalist and senior at Phillips Academy Andover – +Skanda Koppula – as he dives into “the force” of electricity and magnetism. He will be demonstrating the interconnection between these forces. Using these household items (a wire, a magnet and a light bulb) he will test some of the theories principles governing the connection. Bring your questions and curiosity to follow along with Skanda and the other #deSTEMber participants at 10 AM PST / 12PM CST / 1 PM EST. Keep tuning into the 31 days of #deSTEMber with +Girlstart and +Google Science Fair for more at-home experiments and STEM activities.”   Quote taken from Google Event Page created by Google Science...

Dawn Mission G+ Hangout w/ CosmoQuest: Asteroid Mappers

Hangout with Dawn Mission scientists and educators and explore giant asteroid Vesta through Dawn’s citizen science project, Asteroid Mappers: Vesta Edition, a collaboration between Dawn and CosmoQuest​. You’ll hear about the mission and its citizen science from the people who made it happen. We’ll map some images of mini-planet Vesta together, and you’ll get a chance to ask questions. #deSTEMber continues to rock with that marvelous, not-just-a​-rock-in-t​he-sky, mini-plane​t Vesta! Submit your Asteroid Mapper questions by leaving a comment below, on Dawn’s Facebook page, or by using #asteroidmappers on Twitter. Visit this event page on December 11, 2012, 5 PM PST / 6 PM MST / 7 PM CST / 8 PM EST to watch the Hangout On Air, and to chime in on the conversati​on.

Monkey Business: STEM Women on G+ featuring Erin Kane

“We’re kicking off a series profiling individual women in our +STEM Women on G+  page. Join us this Saturday 8th December as we feature +Erin Kane who is a graduate student pursuing a PhD in primatology. We will have a G+ Hangout on Air with +Buddhini Samarasinghe and +Scott Lewis (of +CosmoQuest), where we ask Erin questions about her project on Diana monkeys in Cote d’Ivoire. We will also find out what led her to choose this particular field along with the influences and mentors that helped make it happen. If you’re interested in being profiled, please contact us. In the coming weeks we hope to feature women in diverse fields within STEM and hear their unique stories and perspectives. If you have any questions for Erin, please leave your comments below! #STEMWomen   #deSTEMber” Quote taken from Google Event Page created by STEM Women on...

In The Field with a Chemical Engineer

“What does a day in the life look like for a chemical engineer? Do they play with chemicals all day or sit behind their desks doing chemical equations? Join +Girlstart and the +Google Science Fair as #deSTEMber kicks off In the Field Fridays with a first hand look into the life of chemical engineer — +Jamin Bennett. As a recent graduate from Lehigh University, Jamin has been working with Air Products & Chemicals Inc. as a project engineer specializing in designing and building chemical and gas distribution systems for the semiconductor world. Make sure to follow along from the +Google Science Fair page with Jamin and the other #deSTEMber participants on Friday, December 7 at 12PM CST. There will be surprise on the hangout you won’t want to miss! Keep tuning into the 31 days of #deSTEMber with +Girlstart and +Google Science Fair for more at-home experiments and STEM activities. *For a full list of events, check out Girlstart’s calendar (http://goo.gl/fP810).*”   Quote taken from the Google Event Page created by Google Science...
