Girls in STEM: Walking with Evelyn Cheesman

August 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Austin Gardens Environmental Education Center Main Room
167 Forest Avenue, Oak Park IL 60302

Evelyn Cheesman loved bugs. When she was told she wasn't allowed to study them because she was a girl, she figured out how to do it herself anyway. And every time she hit a setback, she kept powering through. Join us as we explore the life of "The Woman who Walks" and the insects she discovered, through story, art, and more.  


In the US, women are 48% of the workforce but only 27% of the STEM careers. This family-friendly program explores a different science-loving lady each session through story, art, and more!


Registration is for one child with an adult. Adult must stay for the duration — this is not a drop-off program.
