14841 • Girls in STEM: Getting and Keeping Their Interest-Ocracoke

Designed for teachers in grades 412.

STEM is an interdisciplinary approach to teaching science, technology, engineering and math. Studies show that girls’ interest in STEM peaks by age 11 and often disappears by age 15. This program will explore the reasons why girls often abandon STEM and investigate ways to capture and maintain their interest. Teachers will examine successful STEM programs and the ways their best practices can be utilized in any school or classroom. With help from experienced educators, teachers will identify opportunities to use STEM in their own classrooms and will learn specific strategies that they can begin using immediately.
