On November 30, the Kent State University Library hosted the Girls4Steam hackathon-style event, which brought together over 80 local high school students.

Girls4STEAM is a hackathon event hosted by the Kent State Student Chapter for American Computing Machinery-Women in partnership with the Research Center for Educational Technology (RCET) of Kent State’s College of Education, Health & Human Services. The event is designed to inspire young women in grades 7 through high school to be creators of technological innovations - not just consumers of technology - who use technology as a creative tool to build solutions for problems or challenges people face in their daily lives.

Educators, scientists and technologists from Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Kent State University and Cleveland Metroparks have partnered to develop a new learning app that is now live and freely available on iTunes. The app, called ParkApps, features a number of different resources aimed at educating park visitors as they run, hike and bike through the parks.
