The Dorris Dann Kids Campus is energized and in the midst of its current Summer session, which began on June 14. This year’s curriculum will include a two-week interdisciplinary programming called BRITE, focused on increasing gender equity in STEM for girls in grades 6 through 10.
A newly-received grant from National Girls Collaborative Project, BRITE will feature interactive speaker-role models Nicole Stott, astronaut and TEDTalk speaker; Yamilee Toussaint Beach, founder and CEO of STEM from Dance, a nonprofit that teaches girls concepts and dance to create engaging and expressive performances; and Munira Tyabji, a Visual Effects Supervisor at DreamWorks Animation. BRITE is centered in problem solving and provides girls a space to demonstrate and build competence, interact and receive recognition from female role models.
DDKC’s Summer Enrichment Program ends July 29. For more information about BRITE, stay tuned for Our Saviour Center’s July 2021 Newsletter.
