It’s Black History Month!
Over the course of the month I was highlighting the amazing work of various women of color in STEM. I created project-based activities celebrating Women of Color in STEM. In this bundle you will find:
- How the mathematician Gladys West contributed to the invention of GPS.
- How Mary G Ross was the first Native American female engineer, the first female to work for Lockheed Martin.
- How Dr. Marie Maynard Daly contributed to finding the correlation between cholesterol and hypertension.
- Ellen Ochoa who was the first Hispanic woman to travel to space.
Gladys West is known for her contribution towards the invention of GPS. In this activity students will work on various sequencing activities, coding activities and geotagging. Sequencing events is a major part of coding and literacy. Students must be able to properly sequence events in code to get programs to execute properly. This is great cross-curricular activity that celebrates the incredible work of Gladys West
In this resource you will find:
- Video and Bio of Gladys West
- Intro to Algorithms
- Sequencing Events
- Mapping Events
Dr. Marie Maynard Daly
Dr. Marie Maynard Daly is known for her contribution towards hypertension. In this STEM activity for kids that honors women of color in STEM students will learn who Dr. Marie Maynard Daly is, play an interactive heart game and a drag and drop game. It is a virtual activity that can be used on Google Slides or Seesaw.
In this activity you will find:
- Introduction to Marie Maynard Daly
- Interactive heart parts and functions game
- Sketch the path of blood flow activity
- Drag and drop game
Dr. Ellen Ochoa
This STEM challenge introduces students to Dr. Ellen Ochoa, the first Hispanic woman in space.
Following a bio of Ellen Ochoa and mini quiz students will then watch a read aloud of How to Catch a Star. How to Catch a Star is a fun little story where a little boy tries to capture a star from the sky.
This STEM activity for kids requires students to create a star catcher. This activity can be done in person or virtually. Students can use materials from all around the house which are specified in the video.
In this STEM activity for kids you will find:
3) Read aloud
4) STEM challenge
5) Planning page
6) Reflection page
Mary G Ross
In this STEM activity for kids students will learn about Mary G Ross who was the first female Native American engineer. They will learn about her contributions to science. They will then have three STEM challenges to choose from.
I hope you enjoy this and happy teaching! I hope you like it! If you are in search of more STEM/Virtual activities check these out:

PS - I know organising your STEM challenges and STEM projects for the school year can be a pain so I created a year long STEM content planner on my blog. You can grab and it use it as you like www.sproutingstems.in
