Join Ms. Ana for this week’s Current Event
On this week in history, Shirley Chrisholm was born.
Chrisholm made history by becoming the first black woman elected to Congress. She did not stop making history there, though! She became a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus and went on to be the first black candidate to run for a major-party nomination. The major-party was the Democratic party.
Every week is a celebration in town! Check out these cool events going on in your town this week.

DIY STEM (Do It Yourself STEM)
DIY STEM is an activity-based program that helps young people make connections between scientific principles and real-world application. The goal of DIY STEM is to promote interest in and awareness of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and provide STEM-related learning opportunities for traditionally underserved groups, including girls and young people of color.
With DIY STEM, Clubs can provide members who might otherwise not have access to STEM experiences with simple, fun, hands-on activities. Exposure to science, technology, engineering, and math is critical during the tween years, when Club members’ natural curiosity drives interest and builds capacity for success in these disciplines.
Students will build a 4-wheel balloon car with the given supplies and try different ways to make the car go further. You can even race to see whose car is the fastest!
