Join the Montana Girls STEM Collaborative for this free Role Models Matter workshop, a pre-conference session of the Spring 2016 Collaboration Forum. Techbridge's Role Models Matter is an initiative that prepares STEM professionals and students for outreach, and helps STEM providers think more about how to incorporate role models and mentors into their programming.
Role models play a critical role in creating opportunities for girls to envision a career in STEM. The Role Models Matter training is an opportunity to prepare organization leaders, educators, volunteer trainers in how to increase and improve the quality of your organization’s outreach to girls in STEM. During the training, you will:
- Learn what elements contribute to an effective role model visit
- Practice how to integrate STEM careers through ice breakers, introductions, career showcases and hands-on activities
- Hear tips and techniques to engage girls in meaningful discussions
This workshop is offered in conjunction with the Montana Girls STEM Spring Collaboration Forum. Attendance at the collaboration forum is not required, though we sincerely hope you can join us for the remainder of the afternoon!
