Where girls read for fun
Who said math can’t be fun!?! We had a blast this past weekend for the first meeting of our Detroit East group! Our Progressionista was Dr. Ingrid Macon, CEO of Math Expansion (an amazing math game!), owner of the Detroit Teacher Store, and Data Analyst for Detroit Public Schools.
She taught us how math is incorporated into every one of those roles and how we can use math and entrepreneurship to live out our dreams! We also learned how to play Math Expansion with the creator herself. We’re so excited to read The Miscalculations of Lightening Girl by Stacy McAnulty.
Our first meeting of our sixth program year was ENGINEERED perfectly!
The Progressionista was Crystal Watkins, a phenomenal engineer and computer scientist. After hearing her speak about her career journey, we engineered own structures using Legos.
This month's read is Ellie the Engineer by Jackson Pearce.
