We’re partnering¬† with Pop Warner again to bring you (Sci)Cheer Chats!

(Sci)Cheer Chats are monthly virtual events that bring together Pop Warner youth cheerleaders, the Science Cheerleaders, and other current professional Cheerleaders with STEM backgrounds to discuss the synergy of science and cheerleading and the fascinating and fulfilling opportunities that careers in STEM offer, as well as to do hands-on science activities and learn science-themed cheers.

This month, Darlene Cavalier, the founder of the Science Cheerleaders and SciStarter will host a panel discussion with Science Cheerleaders Dr. Wendy, Samantha, and Dr. Hilary. This session will also include activities to introduce citizen science and to help youth cheerleaders visualize what it means to be a scientist.

Register here for all upcoming (Sci)Cheer Chats! Use password CHEER (all caps).

We also have inspiring future guests lined up. Check out our schedule of SciCheer Chats below! Additional details will follow for these upcoming events. Recaps and replays will be posted as soon as they become available after each session.
