  • Given the current conditions, we believe we will be able to meet in person for our upcoming Branch Meetings beginning in October;
  • We have utilized Zoom successfully throughout the past year of the pandemic and hope to do so in the future;
  • Our Membership renewals have reached 61, with only 35 to go to reach our total members at the end of the 2020-2021 year. If you haven’t already renewed your membership, please do so …we NEED your help next year!!

STEAM in a box

2021 STEAM In A BOX Program Breaks Records; 195 Girls Served!

Despite the pandemic, the wonderful women of AAUW Greater Naples Branch were determined to produce a 24th annual STEAM program for 5th-grade girls.  Though a live conference was not possible as in the past, the STEAM Committee invented a STEAM in a Box program, which provided 144 fifth-grade girls in Collier County Public Schools:

  • Two STEM project kits to complete at home;
  • The book, Girls Think of Everything, written and signed by Kathleen Thimmesh, about women scientists and inventors; and
  • Links to professionally produced videos of local women in STEAM careers.
