What opportunities are available for girls in STEM careers? How do we increase girls’ awareness, spark their interest, and develop their confidence to pursue careers in STEM? This workshop will demonstrate how STEM disciplines are essential to our health, happiness, and safety, and will provide participants with tips and tools for talking to girls and their parents about opportunities in STEM. Interactive activities seek to reduce anxiety and bolster confidence in the GS leaders. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to advocate careers in STEM to girls and their parents using correct and positive messages that appeal to students’ interests and values.

This workshop was presented as a part of the Girl Scouts STEM Conference, with the goal to create a statewide STEM initiative among the various GS regions. My task was to help the participants “get into the minds of girls,” share opportunities for girls in STEM, dispel stereotypes about STEM, and teach the most effective messages for STEM to girls.

Presented 8 April 2011 in Plano, Texas
