Demmer Library announces Girls in STEM series

The Demmer Library in Three Lakes is inviting families, and especially girls ages 10-18, to join them in a new programming series based on females in STEM - science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The program will start at 6 p.m. Jan. 14 in the Demmer Library Maple room with a Women in STEM presentation by an architect followed by a hands-on building experiment. For families that are interested, pizza will be offered prior to the presentation.

"While a lot of girls between third grade and the end of high school lose interest in STEM fields one of the primary reasons is a simple one; they don't see regular enough reinforcement that they can stay in and succeed in such fields," library officials said in a press release announcing the series. "The Demmer Library and a group of community volunteers are hoping to fight this by highlighting women who chose STEM careers. While the presentation is open to all - old and young, families, women and men - the organizers would especially love to have more young women in those critical years between 10 and 18 there."

"We are looking to host this series of speakers once a month on the second Tuesday of each month," librarian April Lammert commented. "This program will be the community/family piece with a follow-up program on the fourth Wednesday of the month that invites girls ages 10 to 18 to come work on a STEM-based activity. We are hoping this will foster STEM skills but also critical thinking and friendship as well."

Registration for the programs is encouraged but not required. Call 715-546-3391 to register.
