Weekend 1 Recap

We did it! The first weekend of GeekGirlCONLINE was an absolute success. We were excited to bring our DIY Science Zone to you at home. Together, we learned paper chromatography, the science of moon travel through the creation of bottle rockets, how insects cosplay, how to make a raw egg bounce, and had a little fun with Jell-O optics!

Viewers tuned in to zookeeper PJ Beaven’s Magical Beasts talk and learned about the magic of animals, and we wrapped up our first weekend with Dr. Kali Cyrus—who helped us journey through racial bias in STEM!

It was fun, informative, and super easy to participate in. If you missed any of the presentations, you can catch them on Youtube now!
