Coloring with cuSTEMized

cuSTEMized recently hosted our first fun-filled hands-on learning event in collaboration with The Innovation Institute, a local after-school STEM enrichment program.


We had some hands-on fun with making rainbows using prisms and flashlights. And of course, had lots of fun coloring! We also heard from 3 STEM guest speakers from Harvard. We learned about computer science from myself and Kamil Slowikowski, geology from Tamara Pico, and epidemiology from Ruoran Li! Check out our Facebook for more photos.


Thanks to our wonderful parents for coming! This would not be possible without you! Thanks to Jennifer Montana and The Innovation Institute for providing their inspiring and creative space. We thank our outreach coordinator, Sayda Zelaya, and graphic designer, Jess Rice, for their hard work.

I hope girls walked away from this event knowing that rainbows are not magic and that they are physical properties and manifestations of light and refraction. Excited to do more fun outreach events in collaboration in the future!
