4th Annual Girls to the Moon Campference
Nossi College of Art
Sat, Sep 15 9:00 am
Inspiring sessions. Incredible speakers. Hands-on fun. One unforgettable day. Girls to the Moon invites girls age 10-14 and their caregivers to our 4th annual campference! Spend the day learning about everything from puberty and consent to confidence and creativity. Take some time to explore our interactive gallery, where we'll have everything from construction and robotics projects to a nail art bar. Here's a sampling of the sessions we're cooking up for the 2018 Campference. Making Failure Your Fave: 50% of girls feel paralyzed by the fear of failure during puberty. That means they're opting out of key growth opportunities, like taking on challenges and trying new things. In this session, we'll celebrate failure instead of fear it, with a "failure festival" that turns the F-word into a mark of leadership, innovation, and risk-taking in pushing the boundaries of what is possible. Bo$$ with Money: Smart girls know and understand the value of money, and how to manage it. This session will focus on some money management basics â€“ spending, saving and investing. Girls will learn how to work with their own money, and the money theyâ€™re going to have when theyâ€™re out of school. Go Ahead and Brag: Talking About Yourself the Right Way Girls learn early to shy away from "thinking too much of themselves" â€“ but we're here to tell you, you're awesome! In this session, we'll talk about talking about ourselves. Learn how to share your achievements, successes and best qualities without feeling like a jerk. We promise it's possible! Howâ€™d You Get That Cool Job? A panel of women with really cool jobs discusses how they came to be zoo veterinarians, television hosts, NASA scientists, and other exciting professions.
