NGCP Fifteenth Anniversary!

In September of 2002, NGCP leadership received funding from the National Science Foundation to serve educators in the Pacific Northwest by providing networking and professional development opportunities. We developed the Program Directory as a way to find STEM opportunities and as a collaboration tool which has grown and transitioned to The Connectory, the largest national database of programs and opportunities for young people.                               

Fifteen years later, Collaboratives are serving 41 states connected locally and nationally to provide more opportunities for girls to engage in STEM activities. The NGCP collaborative model is transforming the way educators work to advance the participation of girls in STEM. More than 20.15 million girls (and 9.5 million boys) are served by programs participating in the NGCP network.                                

To celebrate, we are turning the spotlight on program providers that are doing great work with girls. Join us using #NGCPShineOn #NGCPShineOn to tag a STEM or CS program that NGCP should shine a light on!
