Karyn Michaela and Aimee Donohue- Advanced Math and Science Academy Charter School
Karyn Michaela and Aimee Donohue
CS GEMS is a program created and implemented by two high school seniors, Karyn Michela and Aimee Donohue. The program was designed to encourage middle school girls in technology learning. The two developed a ten week curriculum to engage middle school girls in mobile app developement. Each week a group of 20 middle school students met with Karen and Aimee to learn how to develop and program a mobile app based on their choice of a book. At the end of the program, the middle school groups presented their work to our school community of parents, faculty and administrators. Karen and Aimee dedicated there personal time getting themselves trained and then shared their knowledge with these younger female students. Knowing that this is their last year of high school, they then trained several 11th grade girls to take the lead role when they go off to college. It will be a sustainable programs for years to come thanks to these two young ladies.
