What’s missing from our high school and technical center STEM classrooms? Girls! Learn why girls shy away from careers in STEM fields, why this is an issue both for individual students and for the career fields as a whole, AND what you can do to change this trend. Gain insight into ways to spark interest in math and science, recruit female students, and retain and support them in your classroom and beyond. We will discuss successful approaches such as the Women Can Do Conference, Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, and the Rosie’s Girls Summer Program. Workshop participants will walk away with big-picture suggestions as well as tactics to implement immediately.
