Girls on the Run 5K: To Space and Beyond!
Saturday, April 25th, 2020
6 - 10 AM @ Ala Moana Beach Park
Our semesterly partnership with Girls on the Run Hawai'i returns! For those who haven't participated before, GOTR is an organization that leads 3rd-8th grade girls through a 10-week program through a curriculum focused on emotional and physical wellness. At the end of the program, the girls are prepared to complete a celebratory 5K! Before the run, participants engage in "Inspiration Stations," and ours is full of STEM education!
This year our theme is "To Space and Beyond!" focusing on space and atmospheric sciences. We have rocket launchers, "moon sand", DIY cloud-in-a-bottle, and more activities planned! We're going to need tons of volunteers, no experience in space or atmospheric science required! Come share your passion for science and STEM with these awesome 3rd-8th grade girls.
