Monsanto Fund Supports STEM Education for Girls
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), February 10, 2017 - Marian Middle School is preparing its all-girl student body for careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through an innovative educational model that focuses heavily on STEM learning at the middle school level and connections to internship and job opportunities after they graduate.
Since 2012, the Monsanto Fund has supported Marian Middle School's STEM program. In a release, Michelle Insco, Monsanto Fund program officer said, "Today's students will be key to addressing global challenges like climate change and discovering ways to feed more people using fewer resources. Over the last five years, Marian Middle School has put in place diverse, engaging curriculum that not only prepares students for more advanced coursework in STEM, but also helps students see themselves as tomorrow's leaders."
Marian Middle School's STEM program has grown from a stand-alone class in 2011 to an interdisciplinary way of thinking, teaching, and learning. In addition to core math and science classes, students at Marian Middle School take STEM lab, robotics, culinary arts, and media. All classes are designed to reflect an increased focus on STEM and to prepare students for further discovery in high school and college. The program also includes Quest, a weekly workshop that encourages hands-on STEM learning and allows students to identify and solve real-world problems.
"Girls are underrepresented in STEM fields," said Sister Sarah Heger, CSJ, principal. "Because STEM-related careers will only continue to grow, it is vital to prepare more students for those jobs. Our school partners with generous supporters like the Monsanto Fund to prepare our girls to be workforce ready critical thinkers and creative problem solvers with the skills to be highly employable in STEM-related careers. Monsanto Fund's support moves our students one step closer to their dreams of being architects, pediatricians, photographers, entrepreneurs, construction workers, veterinarians, physical therapists, college professors, and much, much more."
Internships with the Missouri State Archives
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), February 5, 2017 - Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft has announced two internship opportunities for qualified undergraduate or graduate students interested in working with the records of the Supreme Court of Missouri held by the Missouri State Archives.
The Archives holds tens of thousands of Supreme Court of Missouri files documenting each case heard by the court between 1804 and 2014. These case files contain primary materials found in no other repository, e.g. briefs, motions, decisions, related correspondence, transcripts and notes. Further, they provide a history of broad topics in Missouri's experience, such as slavery, women's issues, immigration, the Civil War and the environment.
The 2017 Supreme Court of Missouri Historical Society Interns will flatten, surface clean and re-house case file documents. Additionally, they will continue to build the Supreme Court of Missouri Historical Records Database by entering case file information. The dynamic indexing project enables researchers to search the case files in the Archives' holdings by name of party, year filed and keywords.
Two successful candidates will be awarded $3,000 each for eight weeks of work during the summer of 2017. Interested students must submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, college transcript, a description of any research conducted in a related field and a letter of recommendation from a faculty member. These materials may be sent to Dr. Shelly J. Croteau, Assistant State Archivist, Missouri State Archives, P.O. Box 1747, 600 W. Main St., Jefferson City, MO 65102. Review of candidates will begin on March 15 and the notification of awards will occur in April.
Aspen Young Leaders Fellowship Selects Inaugural Class of St. Louis Fellows
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), January 29, 2017 - The Aspen Institute's Youth & Engagement Programs has announced the selection of 24 area youth ages 16 - 20 for the inaugural St. Louis cohort of Aspen Young Leaders Fellows
The first new undertaking of The Aspen Institute's Youth & Engagement Programs, Aspen Young Leaders Fellowship (AYLF) will develop values-driven young leaders and enable the next generation of citizens.
With the help of AYLF, the 24 young people who make up the inaugural cohort of St. Louis Aspen Young Leaders Fellows will develop the skillset necessary to drive action in their communities for generations to come. They exude hope, optimism, and a commitment to leading the change they want to see in St. Louis.
The Aspen Young Leaders Fellowship is a new, place-based initiative of The Aspen Institute's Youth & Engagement Programs that will develop the next generation of local, purpose-driven community leaders. In accordance with The Institute's commitment to values-based, action-oriented leadership, AYLF will foster substantive thought around the values and perspectives necessary to face the challenges in urban and rural communities across America.
Cohorts will meet over the course of two years, a portion of which will be dedicated to Fellows building the skills necessary to engage effectively with their communities, and a portion of which will implore Fellows to use those skillsets to take action to solve critical issues facing the St. Louis region.
The 24 young people who make up the inaugural cohort of AYLF St. Louis Fellows bring together athletes, future doctors, social activists, musicians, theologians, inventors, entrepreneurs, and world travelers. They represent a diversity of genders and racial and ethnic identities, are high school students, college students, and hold part-time jobs.
"We are excited about the opportunity to launch our inaugural cohort in the St. Louis region in partnership with FOCUS St. Louis. I'm inspired by the commitment and passion exhibited by these young people, and I look forward to learning more about the region through their experiences," said Zakiya Reid, Director of AYLF.
In St. Louis, MO, AYLF is partnering with FOCUS St. Louis, a locally based leadership organization with a shared passion for preparing diverse leaders to work cooperatively for a thriving St. Louis region through experience-based leadership training, civic issue education, and public engagement initiatives.
"We are so pleased to partner with our friends and colleagues at The Aspen Institute in launching the Aspen Young Leaders Fellowship," said Dr. Yemi Akande-Bartsch, President and CEO of FOCUS St. Louis. Dr. Akande-Bartsch continued, "This collaboration allows us to not only deepen our collective impact, but train young leaders to serve as catalysts for change in our region." The first session of AYLF programing in St. Louis will take place Feb. 3 - 4.
