Research has shown that girls who interact with female role models are more likely to develop and maintain an interest in STEM.  Bringing STEM to life is an important step in getting all students interested in STEM careers and excited about their futures.  Participants will learn the “Recipe for Role Model Success” (Techbridge’s Role Models Matter Curriculum) and fabulous in-person and online resources to engage STEM role models in the classroom and beyond.

Don’t miss out on this hands-on, interactive experience that will help you and others better engage girls (and all students) in STEM!  Thanks to the Governor’s Commission for Women (http://governor.state.tx.us/women/) for supporting TxGCP’s Role Models Matter dissemination across Texas.
