Increasing Collaboration to Improve Girl-serving STEM Programs

Why is Collaboration Important?
High levels of collaboration among educators and programs engaging girls in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) increases the efficiency and effectiveness and overall capacity of programs and therefore increases opportunities and improves experiences for girls in STEM. The National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) strengthens the capacity of girl-serving STEM organizations and provides opportunities for programs to collaborate.

 New people or organizations is the most likely factor to increase levels of collaboration.


How Does NGCP Increase Collaboration?

NGCP increases awareness of programs or organizations. 



“It (NGCP) fills a critical need in the ecosystem of involving girls in STEM. Without it, there is no mechanism for connecting those who do this work across a broad reach of organizations, higher education, K-12, and industry.”
