STEMinistas get hands-on at Radix

Three girls' heads poke out from a tangle of foliage

On Tuesday, some 20 incoming fourth-grade STEMinistas cuddled chickens, made seed balls, checked out a solar-powered pontoon, discussed the ecosystem and learned about environmental stewardship at The Radix Center in Albany’s South End.

Their lessons were part of a two-week enrichment program for the STEMinistas, a group of science-minded girls taking part in a range of hands-on activities involving STEM – science, technology, engineering and math.

Take a look at some Facebook photos of their outing. (You don't need a Facebook account to see the pictures linked in the highlighted text. A window may appear that says, “To see more from Albany City Schools on Facebook, log on or create an account,” but you can dismiss it by clicking “not now.”)

Thanks to our friends at The Radix Center for a great learning experience!
