Where are we, and how do we engage girls in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)?
Sci-Port: Louisiana's Science Center will host a one-day workshop for Louisiana informal educators in the Alexandria area to build your capacity to develop and deliver STEM programming and examine exhibits to be more relevant to girls. The workshop will be facilitated by: Lou Papai, Director of Education and Public Programs and Michele McKee, Program & Education Grants Manager. Workshop participants can expect to increase their awareness of: what the current research says about girls and women in STEM; the core concepts of gender equity and cultural competency in STEM; cultural dimensions used to understand cultural differences; the importance of gender equity and cultural competency in STEM programming and exhibit development strategies; and the resources available through the Girls RISEnet website. Workshop participants will also get hands-on experience in using tools to assess the effectiveness of programs or exhibits in the museum setting for relevance across gender, race, ethnicity and other dimensions of diversity.
