We are very happy to learn that Wayne State University and the WSU College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts support our Wikid GRRLs project and its associated research with grants. They will pay for transportation for teachers in our program to go and teach middle and high school girls online skills in Detroit Public Schools. They will also be used to purchase supplies for participants — to show them that they are appreciated and recognized in their efforts to navigate the wiki world. We are looking forward to launching our curriculum in five Detroit Public Schools this fall.
If you are a Detroit Public School with middle and early high school girls, have computers or a computer lab with working internet and are interested in participating in Wikid GRRLs, please e-mail Stine Eckert at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a Wayne State University student interested in teaching the Wikid GRRLs curriculum or to help with research and organization, please also e-mail Stine Eckert at email@example.com.
