In our efforts to maximize girls’* persistence to STEM careers, Techbridge Girls’ STEM events are designed to expose girls to broad STEM content, careers, and role models in their local communities. These events include conferences, panels, field trips, and role model visits to support girls’ pursuit of STEM careers. Girls will have an opportunity to connect with their peers and interact with STEM professionals in their communities.
STEM events are led by volunteers including teachers, caregivers, system-builders, role models, and mentors who want to interrupt the gender and cultural gaps in STEM education and industries. Volunteers who host a group of local girls through fun, hands-on STEM workshops and community-building activities are interested in working to inspire and equip girls to pursue STEM careers. They are also interested in science and math, but don’t have to be experts or have previous experience delivering STEM curricula.
Join the STEM Events Network
The STEM Events Network (SEN) includes the work of The Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) Network. For over 45 years, the Expanding Your Horizons Network has brought together thousands of volunteers and reached over 1M girls* to expose them to fun, hands-on STEM experiences.
We offer three tiers of membership that provide a variety of different resources including grants, topical training webinars, and consultative support.
We look forward to including you in our network of partners. If you are interested in hosting an event that you would like to include in our SEN, let us know!
The SEN continues to provide an umbrella of support to volunteers hosting these events by building a community and providing training curricular and operational resources. All members of the SEN will receive:
- Curriculum for STEM workshops conducted by non-educators (includes training for the workshop facilitator)
- General volunteer training to guide effective support of girls to STEM careers, especially BIPOC girls
- Registration platform, which creates a microsite and collects data
- Student satisfaction survey and data visualization
- Templates for event operations
- Networking site for members through Participate.
- Opportunities to engage corporate volunteers
- Newsletters and access to partnership opportunities
