This 30-minute Brite Application Webinar serves as an informational webinar for informal STEM education programs interested in applying to the Brite Program. During the webinar, we will review the goals, weekly structure, and requirements for Brite 2021. There will also be time for questions about the application and process.

Brite is an online, interdisciplinary STEM program built for girls ages 13-16. The Brite Pilot was offered in the summer of 2020. Brite 2021, a joint venture between the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) and The Hello Studios, will be held July 12-22, 2021, and will provide a high-quality, online suite of activities centered on collaborative learning with female role models. Brite 2021 will consist of two courses: Art x Science, featuring role models and activities at the intersection of art and science, and Dream Big, Take Risks, featuring role models and activities that introduce girls to audacious careers in STEM. A customized online platform, accessed through a 1:1 device, will serve as a launching pad for girls to participate in individual, small group, and community-wide activities.

Target Audience

NGCP is recruiting informal STEM education programs, with a particular focus on programs serving girls from underrepresented groups, including Black, Latinx, Native American, Indigenous, and youth in rural communities. Individuals may not apply.
