This self-paced course covers ways that adult allies can support young women interested in STEAM fields. Although most girls express interest in science, technology, engineering, art+design, and mathematics, this doesn’t always translate into career success for young women. This course covers some of the reasons why and offers strategies for adults to support youth who might not otherwise pursue careers in STEAM.
Participants will learn:
- Strategies for getting girls engaged
- How to challenge their own gender biases
- The role of mistakes
- How internet access can both help and challenge young women
Target Audience: This course is for any adult ally to a middle school or high school girl. This includes teachers and coaches looking for professional development hours or parents, guardians or youth group leaders who want to support the young women in their community.
Course is offered by Community Bridge Video.
