Congratulations to the New Mexico Girls Collaborative in C-STEM, Missouri Girls Collaborative STEM Initiative and the Colorado Collaborative for Girls in STEMfor their successful Kick-Off events. A few highlights: New Mexico featured many great speakers including a girl panel that provided a young female voice for computing and STEM. Missouri's Kick-Off Conference was held in collaboration with the Missouri School Age Community Coalition's annual Professional Development Institute and included a variety of STEM-specific workshops with a networking dinner. Colorado featured keynote speaker Violeta Garcia, STEM Coordinator at the Colorado Department of Education and a hands-on design challenge where participants worked in teams to build the tallest tower out of 20 index cards and masking tape that could support weight on top.
