The 'Big Dream Movement' inspires Cody and Powell students and families

(Cody, Wyo.) - Last night, Park County School District 1 in Powell and PCSD 6 in Cody joined together for a community conversation about STEM careers. Over 50 families, students and community members watched the film, Big Dream, a documentary that follows the stories of seven young women who are breaking barriers and overcoming personal challenges to follow their passion in STEM fields. James Kappati, Instructional Technology Director, said, "It was great to see positive collaboration and conversation across the county."

The lessons were powerful as the main focus was to inspire and teach young girls that they are smart,innovative and can make a difference in STEM fields. If you were unable to attend last night's event, you can learn more about the movement here. Kappati mentioned there will be more activities around this topic during Code Week which begins December 7. There are also plans for more movie nights in early 2016. [image: 0 (5).jpg] #reboot #news
