Events in Great Plains Girls Collaborative Project

Local Collaboratives host a variety of events for STEM practitioners including girl-serving organizations, K-12 formal and informal educators, higher education faculty, industry and business leaders, and government.

New Collaboratives begin with a Kick-Off Conference to announce the project and to begin networking among participants. Programs enter their information into the NGCP online Program Directory and begin collaborating with other partners. A Collaboration Forum is held to share strategies for successful partnerships and provide planning time for collaborative mini-grant projects.

Collaboratives also host two Professional Development Forums that provide exemplary practices and strategies, highlight local programs and resources, and continue the valuable networking experience.

Once mini-grants are complete, Collaboratives will hold a Collaboration Conference. At this conference, grantees will have an opportunity to present their projects to a large group. Collaborative successes are shared and additional networking and professional development activities are offered at this event.

In addition to in-person events, the National Leadership Team hosts free webinars to present effective programs and exemplary practices for working with girls in STEM, including current research, program models and useful resources.
