Well, here’s my Rocktobular project, peeps! You’re getting it a bit early.
It’s all about girls and STEM in Indiana. If you’ve read the stats – you already know that 1. girls are way behind in Indiana…and 2. girls are actually decreasing their interest in 2 of the biggest growth areas of STEM now – a. computer science and b. engineering.
Ladies and gentlemen, I can’t stand back and watch this happen to my sisters, the state of Indiana, and the country of the United States of America.
I’m writing this children’s book as you already know, The Amazing Adventures of the Princesses from Planet STEM – and paying for it out of my own business coffers to help girls and their parents engage in STEM careers…but, I’m running this Kickstarter campaign to get enough copies of this book into ALL of the public libraries in the state, so that little girls–no matter their station, family, or lives, may have access to and be inspired by this book.
The amazing Pam Fraizer of Fraizer Designs is already on board to help me create the amazing 20 princesses in the book (the picture in the Kickstarter video is Chloe and her fraternal twin sister, Dakota). There’s more on what they do in the Kickstarter video.
I hope you can help. I’m sharing this with you before I post and spread it to the masses – as my fab 13 always has my back. I appreciate your support. BETTER YET–the future female engineers, computer scientists, and STEM rockstars of the state of Indiana thank you for your participation and inspiring them to make. This. Earth. Better for all of us!!!!
