Girls Teaching Girls
Today Girls Teaching Girls is a group of teens all over the globe—Miami, Boston, Barcelona, Bilbao, Seattle, Paris, Milan, São Paulo, Sydney, and elsewhere—who while home-bound have translated science and math lessons into eight languages so far, created new graphics, cartoons, animations, programs, and even poetry and art to make the lessons accessible and exciting to girls everywhere. The lessons inspire girls to dive into new topics, like mental health, the environment, and community resilience.
Global CoCreation Lab seeks to expand this effort to Miami's underprivileged and underrepresented communities in STEAM. Women in science, technology, and medicine, though busy as ever, have a chance to inspire and enrich an international community of girls and young women, so the crisis of COVID-19 can lead to growth and prosperity, especially where there is the greatest need.

During this confinement is helping me to stay active and not to give up as the thought that someone is happily waiting for you to teach something really keeps you alive.
I think this is going to help me a lot in the future, both knowing that I have a great community in which I can support or share my thoughts, and helping others acquire new knowledge, passing on the same passion we feel.
Ever since I was young, I have had a love for science and art. My future holds both in combination because rather than thinking that they are two separate entities, combining them can result in innovative designs.
Ultimately, our group is paving a path that is one step closer for the next young mind to be inspired by the true genius of science. Creating videos that are both intriguing to the young eye and informative, will have a beautiful impact on this world. I am so thankful to be a part of that.
I am a part of this new STEAM community to participate in the birth of a community that allows girls to create, laugh, and explore the creation of scientific curriculum as well as discover new scientific possibilities regardless of race, location, language or culture.
This new STEAM community is helping me explore new areas of science and is keeping my STEAM passion active and challenged through these unprecedented times of COVID19. I believe my future can be positively impacted through this community as I am creating new relationships with fellow girls who are interested in the same thing as me.
