|STEM education is hit the hardest with distance learning and the pandemic is already showing signs that it is deepening the gender differences in STEM career aspirations.
Every fall STEM Santa Fe offers its annual STEM Pathways for Girls conference. This conference is focused on sparking and boosting 5th-8th grade girls’ interest in STEM education, with hands-on workshops led by women in STEM, with the goal of keeping girls engaged in STEM education while providing a local support system of like-minded friends and STEM women role models.
In this unconventional year of 2020, the conference is going virtual and will span the whole weekend of November 13-15. Stay tuned.
Registration will open in October. This program is open to girls in 5th-8th grade from the seven counties and pueblos of Northern New Mexico.
Congratulations to our Founder and CEO Lina Germann, named as 2020 winner of Businesswoman in Education award by Albuquerque Journal.
