Exciting News! Women Leading Technology was featured on the national syndication Good Morning America. Now, we're thrilled to introduce our 2nd 12-week WLT STEAAM Experience for Girls Architecture Challenge, tailored for girls from Pre-K to high school. This captivating educational journey unfolds from January through April, offering young minds the opportunity to explore the foundations of architecture while acquiring essential skills in finance, project management, leadership, and more.
In this project, girls will collaborate in three teams, each tasked with designing and constructing life-sized playhouses measuring 4 feet (w) x 4 feet (l) x 5 feet (h). Throughout the process, they'll become proficient in industry-standard architectural design software, creating blueprints, floorplans, elevations, roofing, and much more. Under the guidance of our Lead Female Architect, Kim Nickerson, who is actively involved in the field, the girls will receive real-time insights and mentorship.
We understand the significance of financial literacy for children, and that's why we've seamlessly integrated financial management into this comprehensive 12-week program. As they make choices about building materials, the girls will also benefit from valuable lessons delivered by an industry leader. The victorious team in this challenge will earn scholarships for each team member, empowering them to pursue their STEAAM education in college.
Students will be required to actively engage in a Double Good Popcorn fundraiser with the target of raising at least a minimum of $600. Of the funds raised, Double Good will contribute 50% to WLT, which will be utilized to offset tuition fees. The remainder of the tuition costs will be covered by WLT. Tuition Cost is $1200 per student for 12 weeks. Tuition includes all materials.
