See you at 2018 KSTA State Conference

We are pleased to announce that KGSC will be participating in the 2018 KSTA State Conference on Science Education later this week at the Lexington Convention Center. KGSC co-chair, Czarena Crofcheck PhD, P.E., will give a presentation about local resources and organizations that are working for gender balance in STEM on Saturday, November 10 at 1:45 PM in Thoroughbred Room 6.

On both Friday and Saturday KSTA attendees will be able to meet KGSC Leadership Team members and pick up resources about local and national STEM initiatives at our exhibition booth shared with the KY affiliate of the National Center for Women and Information Technology.

Because girls across the commonwealth tell us that they want more opportunities to do STEM and greater exposure to the local STEM economy and mentors who look like them, we will have resources available on finding female STEM mentors, enhanced opportunities for students and educators, and information about upcoming STEM events across Kentucky.

A Presentation by KGSC Co-Chair Czarena Crofcheck PhD, PE

Kentucky Girls STEM Collaborative is working to motivate girls to pursue careers in STEM by encouraging collaboration and improving inter-program communication. Our central mission is to increase the interest and confidence of girls in STEM disciplines. Through social inclusion, we aim to help all students have a better understanding and support of girls engaging in STEM. KGSC fully supports the success of both boys and girls in STEM and supports integrated events and programs.
