Girls Incorporated of Metropolitan Dallas
Girls Inc. of Metropolitan Dallas aims to inspire all girls to be Strong, Smart, and Bold. For more than 45 years, Girls Inc. has provided effective life skills and enrichment programs that empower girls to take daily charge of their lives. At four campuses and through outreach programs, Girls Inc. offers learning and development opportunities for personal effectiveness, academics, and career planning so that girls ages six to 18 are inspired to lead successful, independent, and fulfilling lives.
ARO worked with Girls Inc. to teach the art of glass blowing to middle school girls between the ages of 9 and 13 years. The experience occurred over the course of several weeks and was designed to strengthen the girls’ understanding of STEAM principles by using a hands-on approach. The students were able to take what they learn in the classroom and create a beautiful chandelier of flowers.
