The Connectory Logo and Airplane Child

The Connectory, operated and managed by the National Girls Collaborative, was developed so parents and other caregivers could find local STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) education opportunities for the kids in their lives. It was also created with program providers in mind, providing the means for discovering new partners as well as ways to showcase the STEAM opportunities that providers are offering for youth. It's free to use!

Families and Caregivers: The Connectory features a range of STEAM opportunities for K-12 youth, including afterschool clubs, summer camps, citizen science events, Maker Fairs, and upcoming one-day events. Browse all the STEAM opportunities near you or narrow your search using advanced filters, such as by topic, location, age, or type of opportunity.

Program Providers: Programs are listed on the Partner Search page (you must be logged in to view), which is only viewable by other program providers and is there to aid collaboration. There, you can search for partners by using keywords and filter your search results by location or distance, collaboration interest, resources available, and resources needed. By “resources,” we mean the assets that programs have or are looking for, such as girls or boys interested in STEAM, STEAM curriculum, and/or access to tools, equipment, or computers.

Getting Started Guide: The Getting Started Guide is online and provides instructions for creating an account and adding your program provider details and associated opportunities.
