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