Young Emerging Scientists Fall 2017 STEM Activity!

Article here on Fall workshops

What makes a motor run?
  • Motors are used everywhere, in cars, appliances, and tiny electronic devices.  We will create a mini-motor using the phenomenon of magnets + copper to produce an electrical  current.
What's your flavor?
  • Get ready for a hot cup of tea this fall, made from your very own Jewel!  We will sample various herbs and plants, discover their tastes and physical benefits.  Each girl will create and package their very own unique blend of tea to take home.  We will also have a career speaker on Ag/Food Science and food mass production.
Meet our Drake Writing Intern
Hi!  My name is Maddie, and I am a sophomore at Drake University.  I’m currently an English/Law, Politics, Society double major with an Anthropology minor, and plan to attend law school after college.  My home is in western Wisconsin, so being a student at Drake has introduced me to Des Moines for the first time – I’m excited to get to know the city better!
I enjoy traveling, kayaking, and reading.  I love cats, and have five back home, as well as an extremely fluffy dog named Tessa.  Even though I’m interested in law, one of my core academic strengths is writing, which is how I came to be involved with Jewels Academy.  I’m honored to be a part of the organization, and ready to see where it takes me
National STEM News
Each year, the Hispanic Engineering, Science, and Technology (HESTEC) Week conference draws people from all over the country to attend.  This year’s theme is “Changing the World Through STEM”, and will feature a day dedicated to robotics, as well as the Middle School Challenge, where middle school students will participate in workshops and attend exhibits geared towards STEM.  The program is for people of all ages, backgrounds, and careers, but teachers and students in particular are encouraged to attend.
