Texas Girls Collaborative Project and TXPOST, Texas Partnership for Out of School Time, are excited to host the upcoming McAllen/Brownsville Area K-12 STEM Outreach Forum.

Calling all organizations, schools and individuals involved in science, technology, engineering and math outreach and recruitment in the McAllen/Brownsville area! Network and learn about the resources available to assist you in your efforts. Connect with programs across the area and hear about upcoming STEM events. And share what you and/or your organization are doing to excited kids about STEM. Forum will explore effective imagery and messaging that engages K-12 students in formal and informal STEM education and excites them about the possibilities of STEM careers. Learn the latest research about engaging girls in STEM and explore the research-based best practices in messaging and hands-on activities that connect a diverse population in the excitement of STEM.

The Texas Girls Collaborative Project connects non-profits, K-12 schools, higher education institutions, companies, organizations and individuals across the state of Texas committed to informing and motivating girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
