BILLINGS -- The Montana Girls STEM Collaborative Project (MGSCP) will host a half-day workshop on Friday, April 12, in Billings.

The event focuses on collaboration and is designed for organizations and individuals who are committed to informing and motivating girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics and to encourage collaboration and improve inter-program communication.

The workshop, called the "Collaboration Forum," will provide an opportunity for participants to hear about successful programs in the state, develop a plan for a collaborative project and learn about the activities of the Montana Girls STEM Collaborative, including how to apply for mini-grants.  

Anyone is welcome to attend, including representatives from businesses, non-profits and government; as well as teachers, counselors, administrators and staff from K-12, higher education and informal education. The workshop takes place from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at MSU-Billings Downtown.

The registration fee is $10, which covers conference materials and refreshments. Participants can register online at http://www.ngcproject.org/montana-girls-stem-collaborative-collaboration-forum

Those who are unable to pay by credit card and would like to make arrangements for another form of payment can contact Martha Peters at Montana State University: mpeters@montana.edu. Peters can also share information about scholarships for those who are unable to pay the registration fee.

The Montana Girls STEM Collaborative is a National Science Foundation-funded effort that encourages girls to pursue STEM careers and studies.
