To start off the new year on the right foot, we’ve teamed up with DoSomething.org to create an amazing giveaway for girls who are dedicated to being the best students they can be – and to girls who love science! We loved DoSomething’s Science Sleuth program so much that we knew we had to promote it with a giveaway full of amazing school supplies.
What is Science Sleuth? After learning that girls are half as interested in science and math as boys are, DoSomething teamed up with 3M to create an innovative SMS experience that allows teens to learn about careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Math Education). By participating, members can unlock donations to support classrooms in need through DonorsChoose.org. If you want to participate, you can text a keyword (STEM) to 38383. They will then take on the role of high-schooler-turned-detective to play a game using STEM-related tactics. Once you play and unlock a grant, you’re then paired with a STEM project in your community and you can give them the grant directly through your phone.
This is such an amazing way to make a difference and also get people more interested in science and math. Plus, it’s really fun! To give you extra motivation, we’re giving away a bunch of school supplies to those who participate, including sunglass-shaped Post-It notes, a high-hell shoe tape dispenser, and more. To enter, follow us on Twitter, then participate in the texting game, take a screenshot of the game to verify you signed up, then tweet the photo to us with the hashtag #sciencegurl. Good luck!
