STEM tips and resources for girls

One of the great things about how easy it is to use the Echo Meter Touch is that it allows kids to learn about bats, acoustics, and citizen science. In fact, we set up a list of links for students to get Echo Meter Touch for their classroom at our STEM resources page.

Following a request from one of our website visitors, we’ve just added a brand new resource specifically for girls who are interested in STEM. National Girls Collaborative Project is an organization that helps girls get involved in STEM via mini grants. Find new mini grant opportunities here.

Though women make up half the college educated population, fewer than 50% of those involved in the rapidly growing STEM fields are female. For tips on how you can get your female students or children into STEM, you can also check out this page that was recently brought to our attention, which provides tips and links on how to get girls involved in STEM!

Now back in stock, our popular Discover Bats! Curriculum Guide and DVD (from Bat Conservation International) bring bat biology to life with dozens of detailed lessons on bat species, habitats, and biology.

Each Discover Bats! book comes with a Quick Start Guide. You get a school week’s worth of lessons. Nicely organized into Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels, the Quick Start Guide provides easy-to-follow lesson plans, applicable to grade school, through high school science and biology class needs. Bundled with our Echo Meter Touch, it is a great way to introduce students to the fascinating world of bats.

We recently announced the Wildlife Acoustics Scientific Grant Program. We’ve gotten several requests for such a program from our customers and we are very happy to bring it to fruition. In line with our mission to advance the conservation of animals through bioacoustics recording technology, we will be awarding up to $5,000 every calendar quarter of product-in-kind grants to biologists, researchers, conservationists or students who work for tax exempt, non-profit organizations.

We realize you may have a number of questions about the program regarding eligibility, products available, the application process, and more. While most of the information you need is available here, we’ll address some major questions below.

Who is eligible to apply?

Anyone associated with a tax-exempt, non-profit organization (students, teachers, professional researchers, etc) is eligible for our grant program.
