NEOSEC Welcomes Visiting Chinese Scientist

Dr. Min Liu, Associate Professor of Fisheries at Xiamen University, Xiamen, China, visited the New England area during the summer of 2010, in order to learn more about cutting-edge ocean science education and outreach activities in the U.S., and to incorporate this knowledge into a new Center for Ocean Science Education Excellence (COSEE) in China. Her goals were realized through the optimization of the well-established, New England Ocean Science Education Collaborative (NEOSEC) network of ocean science resources and partners.

Coastal Studies for Girls – Space Available for Students

Coastal Studies for Girls is actively seeking students for our upcoming Spring semester, and interested students are encouraged to apply now.  We welcome the opportunity to speak with you about our school, our girl-focused academic and leadership programming, and the bright, bold students that are at the heart of what we do. Coastal Studies for Girls (CSG) is the country’s first and only residential marine science and leadership semester school just for 10th grade girls, located on the stunning, rocky coast of Freeport, Maine.  Girls from New England and beyond spend the fall or spring studying hands-on marine and environmental science and experiencing outdoor leadership adventures in our ideal natural classroom, laboratory and playground.  Either exploring the inlets and islands in kayaks, studying the rich natural history of Maine, or researching tide pools just down the road from our classroom, CSG is an inspiring place for girls to experience their academic and leadership potential in a unique, supportive and challenging environment. We have spaces available for current 10th grade girls in our upcoming Spring 2011 semester.  Scholarships are available. Information at < www.coastalstudiesforgirls.org >.

Mini-Grants for Girls’ STEM Projects

The Northeastern Girls Collaborative mini-grant application window is open. Mini-grants are awarded to girl-serving science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) focused programs to support collaboration, address gaps and overlaps in service, and share promising practices. Mini-grant projects must relate to either informal learning or evaluation and assessment. Mini-grants are a small amount of seed funding and are not intended to fully fund entire projects. The maximum mini-grant award is $1000.

Numerous organizations provide valuable but uncoordinated activities and support services related to motivating and supporting girls’ interest in STEM careers. These mini-grants are designed to build collaboration between existing programs and organizations in order to encourage girls to pursue STEM-related educational programs and careers.  Visit the National Girls Collaborative Project Website for details.

STEM Programs for Girls – Fall Forum in Western Massachusetts

The Northeastern Girls Collaborative (NEGC) will hold a Fall Forum at the Engineering and Nanotechnology Ford Hall at Smith College, Amherst, MA on Thursday, November 19, 2009 from 4:00pm. to 6:00pm.   The Fall Forum will feature a number of successful Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs serving K-12 girls in Western Massachusetts, provide information on the goals and objectives of the National Girls Collaborative Project and encourage collaborative efforts among individuals, schools, non-profit organizations, government agencies and corporations.

Too often programs serving girls in STEM are limited in service and impact due to size, location, funding, expertise and equipment,  In other cases, projects compete with each other, duplicating services and seeking the same resources.  The NEGC aims to reduce this competition and increase STEM outreach, interest and participation by providing opportunities for interested individuals to come together and leverage the know-how, talents and resources of programs with like-minded interests.

Registration will begin in early October. For additional information, contact Kim Edgar at KimberlyEdgar@aol.com or #603-448-3708
