Time Zone: 

Girls Communicating Career Connections (GC3) is a youth-produced, video series and companion educator materials on science and engineering careers, developed by and for middle school aged girls, developed by Education Development Center, Inc (EDC). In this webinar, you will learn more about the GC3 videos that share career information, highlight 21st century skill development, and focus on the positive social impact of science and engineering careers - and most importantly, the videos were created by girls themselves. Among the many careers profiled on the website are Robotics Engineer, Forensic Scientist, Marine Biologist, Biomedical Engineer, Atmospheric Scientist and Game Designer to name just a few. Educator materials include an Educator's Guide, with suggested uses for the videos in both formal and informal settings, and a Video Production Curriculum, which aids educators in creating videos of their own. EDC is a global nonprofit organization that designs, delivers and evaluates innovative programs to address some of the world’s most urgent challenges in education, health, and economic opportunity.
