After-school educators from 16 sites around Montana will be at MSU on Thursday, Oct. 20 to complete training for Science Action Club, a hands-on STEM program from the California Academy of Sciences and the National Girls Collaborative Project. Montana's Girls STEM Collaborative was chosen for the program and recruited educators from all areas of the state. They will be implementing the program, called Bugs in Your Schoolyard, over the coming months. The program incorporates citizen science, Nature observations, and outdoor education for middle school youth. Partners include the Institute on Ecosystems, Montana NSF EPSCoR, MSU Extended University, MSU Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and the Women's Foundation of Montana.
