STEM Girls' Club launched at Ranch View MIddle School
HIGHLANDS RANCH – With their futures ahead of them and a world of opportunities awaiting them, a group of girls at Ranch View Middle School (RVMS) aren’t wasting any time when it comes to exploring possibilities.
The students meet twice a week during their lunch period to learn how they can use Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) to change the world.
Coined the STEM Girls’ Club, the group was formed after seventh-grader Isabella Stratas attended the STEM Women and Our Daughters Changing the World event, featuring Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame member Jill Tietjen, held in November.
Tietjen mentors girls and women in the technology and engineering fields and has established and endowed national and local scholarships for women in engineering and technology.
Stratas asked Math Teacher Tiffiny Vaughn if they could start a club, and Vaughn took it from there.
“This club is a tremendous asset for our girls and encourages them to pursue STEM fields,” said Vaughn. “We are motivating our girls to be world changers and make a difference.”
