Girlstart Goes To Washington

November 2, 2010 at 4:31 pm Leave a comment

In October, Katelyn and I had the privilege of attending the first National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) Conference in Washington, DC. The conference provided an opportunity for organizations that provide STEM programs for girls to come together, share ideas and collaborate.

We saw old friends from SciGirls, NGCP, the National Science Foundation, Ingenuity Center, and  Women in Engineering Program at UT Austin. We also met new friends at The After School Corporation, AAUW, Cisco, Michigan Tech, and more!


One of the highlights of our trip was meeting with the White House staff! We sat down with the Council for Women and Girls and talked about the importance of reaching more girls in STEM, women in STEM careers mentoring girls and career preparation for girls. It was wonderful to share our research and results with the White House and have a seat at the national table for future STEM initiatives.
