GiST AND BATS ARE BACK THIS FALL!
Mark your 2022-2023 calendars for:
Boys at Tulane in STEM (BATS) on October 1st, 2022 (Fall) and March 18th, 2023 (Spring) and
Girls in STEM at Tulane (GiST) on October 29th, 2022 (Fall) and April 22nd, 2023 (Spring)!!!
Tulane's Girls in STEM at Tulane (GiST) and Boys at Tulane in STEM (BATS) programs provide fifth through seventh grade students with the opportunity to meet and work with undergraduate, graduate, faculty, and professional role models in STEM fields. Workshops developed by faculty and student teams empower students to inquire, investigate, and discover in a positive environment. Our goal is to open the doors wide and welcome young students to careers in STEM fields by encouraging creative thinking, promoting self-esteem, and increasing awareness of the opportunities in STEM that await them.
Teachers of 3rd through 8th grade students can also participate at BATS and GiST! Thanks to the generosity of Shell and The Joe W. and Dorothy Dorsett Brown Foundation, we are pleased to be able to offer teachers the chance to participate in 3 unique workshops at each event that align with the Louisiana Science Standards for FREE! Participating teachers will get to experience the workshop hands on and discuss how to implement the activities and aligned standards into their classrooms. Teachers will also receive a $100 stipend, aligned curricula ideas, AND supplies to bring the activities back to their school! Preference is given to teachers from majority free or reduced lunch schools.
If you are interested in participating in GiST, BATS, or teacher professional development, sign-up will open in late August/early September!! Information about the programs can be found on our website:
If you would like to bring a group (from a school, girl/boy scout troop, etc.), please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
