We are the ones to change the world. You don't have to be a braniac, you just have to explore and work hard. The craziest idea can improve the Earth. It just takes one step at a time. Mia Jemison didn't go into space as the first African-American by doing nothing. She proved to the world that girls, no matter the race, height, we can do anything.
Channel Island University brought girls from different schools together to inspire them and expose them to STEAM. They had us design this website with the assistance of a great mentor. This program helped get girls out of their comfort zone and learn how to empower the world with GIRL POWER.

Project Ideas by Jasmine Escobedo
Jasmine's Experiments. Try it!
A classic science experiment that ties both science and engineering together.
The first step is picking your supplies. Some good ones are paper, tape, straws, pipe cleaners, and small plastic bags. The next step would be to think of ideas. Drawing them out is a good plan. After you know what to do, it is time to construct. Testing your contraption and making adjustments comes next. When you have finished your contraption, test it once more, but with the egg loaded in.
An easy experiment that is plenty of fun.
This is an experiment I did in the 5th grade. The supplies given were 4 paper cups, clear wrapping paper, 10 straws, and only 1 foot of duct tape. The first step was to design ideas. My team used the 4 cups and taped them together to make them float and water proof. The 10 straws were wrapped in the wrapping paper, making them into a flat surface. We taped the now wrapped straws to the 2 pairs of taped cups. We then tested the boat. The guidelines were as follows. The boat had to float and carry at least 10 pennies for the minimum of 5 seconds. Our boat turned out to be unsinkable and was able to carry more pennies than our instructors brought.
