February Newsletter

Hi everyone, this is Kelly, the STEM City Americorps VISTA. I'm so grateful to have been involved with STEM City over the past year. I had the opportunity to work on programs such as STEM Night, The STEMmy's, and Full STEAM Ahead. It was amazing to see some of the direct impact of these programs on young learners and professionals alike. In addition, I volunteered at Walnut Canyon National Monument where I learned so much from the Park Rangers and staff there. I feel so inspired from this rich community and look forward to pursuing a career in STEM! 

Are you interested in making an art project that will provide a lasting benefit to the community? Groups of individuals, community groups, not-for-profit organizations, businesses, and educational institutions with direct student participation are invited to apply for The Beautification in Action Grant.

The City of Flagstaff through its Beautification and Public Art Commission seeks grant applications for projects that beautify our urban environment. The deadline is March 15th:

The Beautification in Action Grant offers a mini-grant program for streetscape art and beautification, such as landscape projects. Grants of up to $4,500 are available. You can find the grant application near the end of the Beautification in Action Application & Guidelines Packet.
Full STEAM Ahead Highlighted Pairing
NAU Physicist Mark Loeffler is paired with Jillian Hernandez's 5th grade class at Puente de Hózhó Elementary School. The goal is to use a graph to learn something about the planets' properties.

On this International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we would like to recognize some amazing local women in STEM-related fields. Thank you to Krystal Tsosie, Starla Doss, Erin Aadland, Claire Morris, and our own Nurse Geri for inspiring us all.

Thank you to Christina Vu, Killip's STEM AmeriCorps VISTA, and journalism club members for putting this film together. "We want you to know that anything is possible because scientists come from all different places, backgrounds, and cultures. There is no 'cookie-cutter' scientist and there is no one person born knowing everything there is to know about the world."
