Science Cheerleaders Visit Hammond High School

Hey SciCheer fans! My name is Megan and I recently spoke with the newly inducted DIAMONDS at Hammond High School in Columbia, MD. The DIAMONDS are a select group of African American high school females with outstanding performance both in and out of the classroom. The theme of the event was encouraging this group of young women to be the best that they can be. These ladies will be role models to their fellow high school students. SciCheer contributed to this conversation by leading the ladies in a cheer for science and discussing that you can do whatever you want to do if you set your mind to it!

I also helped onboard the DIAMONDS so they can participate in the Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) project with Science Cheerleader, our sister SciStarter, and NASA. Be sure to check that out!

We look forward to mentoring these ladies more in the coming months while helping with this citizen science project!
