Where are we, and how do we engage girls in STEM (Arkansas Discovery Network)?

Sci-Port: Louisiana's Science Center will host a half-day workshop at Museum of Discovery sponsored by Arkansas Discovery Network in Little Rock, Arkansas to build informal educators capacity to develop and deliver STEM programming and examine your exhibits for relevance to girls. This free workshop will be facilitated by Lou Papai, Director of Education/Regional Girls RISE Network Trainer and Michele McKee, Special Programs Manager at Sci-Port. Workshop participants can expect to increase their awareness of: what the current research says about why girls and women are not going into STEM fields; how to overcome the obstacles; the core concepts of gender equity and cultural competency in STEM; the importance of gender equity and cultural competency in STEM programming and/or exhibit development strategies; and the resources available through the Girls RISE Network. Workshop participants will learn how to access and use current research and tools through the Girls RISE Network portal and apply for mini grants to start up collaborations and projects relevant to their girls in STEM initiatives across gender, race, ethnicity and other dimensions of diversity. There is no fee to attend this training. Lunch will be provided from 12-12:30 pm. Travel awards available for this workshop and mini-grants will be available to attendees post workshop completion. For more information, contact Ginsie Simmons, Network Assistant for the Arkansas Discovery Network at gsimmons@museumofdiscovery.org or (501) 537-3081; or Lou Papai, Director of Education/Regional Girls RISE Network Trainer at lpapai@sciport.org or (318) 424-8714.
