2017 KGSC Annual Conference

April 18th, 2017
9am – 2pm

Kentucky Science Center
Louisville, Kentucky

Promoting STEM Through Play!

The Kentucky Girls STEM Collaborative Annual Conference invites STEM professionals, educators, and outreach leaders to help promote our mission to increase the number of women pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

 

When our girls enter STEM careers they benefit economically and so do the economies of our communities and our state. STEM jobs are rapidly increasing, but Kentucky and the United States will not have enough workers to fill our science and engineering jobs if we do not help our girls understand that these careers are accessible and enjoyable.

 

After this conference, we hope that you will join us in other Collaborative events aimed to help our girls join the ranks of scientists and engineers across our state and enrich their lives and the lives of others.
