Dr. Beatty volunteered on June 24 at a "STEM Like a Girl" workshop in Portland, Oregon. The program was organized by STEM Like a Girl (http://stemlikeagirl.org/), and was offered to 3rd to 6th grade girls and their parents. Dr. Beatty helped the girls make fizzy flower bath bombs, which used acid-base chemistry. They also had the chance to make an art robot, a really fun challenge that involved a lot of trial and error. The girls were enthusiastic to learn about opportunities to become scientists, and the event was a lot of fun!
