Calling All Programs Dedicated to Increasing Girls’ Interest in Science, Technology
(MURFREESBORO) — The Girls Raised In Tennessee Science Collaborative, a statewide initiative to encourage girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math is inviting you to register your program in the National Girls Collaborative Project Program Directory.
Teachers, community groups and other organizations committed to collaborating, informing and motivating girls are encouraged to register.
The online program directory lists programs and resources that encourage girls to pursue careers in STEM. The purpose of the directory is to help organizations and individuals network, share resources, and collaborate on STEM-related projects for girls. With the online program directory, you can enter a program for inclusion in the directory, sign up for the e-newsletter listserv and search for programs using various criteria.
In order to register yourself and/or your program in the NCGP Program Directory, please visit http://www.ngcproject.org/directory/index.cfm.
The GRITS Collaborative will be opening up mini-grants soon. In order to be eligible for the GRITS Collaborative Mini-Grants, collaboration between two programs must be established and both programs must be registered in the NGCP Program Directory.
For more information, contact Cacy DeSheles, assistant director of GRITS, via e-mail (email@example.com), call 615-494-7763 or visit mtsu.edu/~grits.
