Project Summary

GSE/EXT: Girls RISE (Raising Interest in Science and Engineering) Museum Network


Girls RISEnet, a partnership between the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, the Association of Science-Technology Centers, and SECME, Inc., strengthed the professional capacity of informal science educators to engage and motivate minority girls in grades 6-12 to explore and pursue science and engineering careers. 

The project addressed the national need to cultivate diversity in preparing the next generation of female scientists and engineers. 

 Objectives included: 

  • Utilized the national network of science centers and museums to raise awareness and broaden access for girls underrepresented in STEM.
  • Developed linkages between organizations with the common purpose of increasing the pipeline of minority female engineers. 
  • Facilitated translation of gender and diversity research into practice through a uniļ¬ed training program. 
  • Provided ongoing services, access to program materials, and tools to broaden the ability of science centers to provide relevant and engaging programming for girls. 

Museums and science centers serving as regional training hubs included: 

Core components of the project included: 

  • Train-the-trainer model to build capacity of 11 partner museums and museum practitioners in their regions. 
  • Follow-up support
  • Mini-grants and travel awards to support implementation in regions (The Girls RISEnet minigrant program is now closed)
  • Web site resources 



Nowadays, antibiotics are as widespread as previously and belong to the class of life-saving medicines for people suffering from specific infections. They can also be used for preventive purposes not to allow a mild infection to turn into a serious disease. There are different forms and classes of https://onlinerxantibiotics.com/ antibiotics. Each type of antibiotic works best for specific types of infections caused by bacteria. Antibiotics also come in different forms that may include the following: Extended-release and immediate-release tablets; Capsules; Liquid drugs; Creams and ointments; Intravenous and intramuscular injections.
