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
