girlSTEM

May 22, 2014 at Delaware Valley College

The fourth annual #girlSTEM (formerly the Girls In Focus with Technology (GIFT) conference) will be held on Thursday, May 22, 2014 at Delaware Valley College. #girlSTEM seeks to inspire middle-to-high school girls to pursue STEM- related fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math).  #girlSTEM features interactive seminars with professional women, hands-on workshops, and open forum discussions.
 
 

2014 Registration Information:

Registration will open April 1, 2014, at 7:00 AM. A link will be posted on this website to access registration. Teachers will need to manually enter each girl's first and last name as part of the registration process.
 
UPDATE:
As of noon on April 2, registration has reached capacity and is now closed. Thank you for the overwhelming interest in this great event!
 

The target audience will be young women that are currently in grades 6-10.
 
Registration will be on a first come, first serve basis. The event capacity is 360 students. Each school building's registration is capped at 20 girls and each school district may not exceed 80 registrants. Once the registration system has reached 360 entries, registration will automatically close. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any pre- registrations.
 
To prepare for registration, please be prepared to enter the following information: 
School Name
Your Name and School Phone Number
Girls' first and last names
 
PLEASE NOTE: #girlSTEM is designed as a school-sponsored and school-chaperoned event. We regret that due to space limitations, we cannot accept individual registrations by parents for their individual children. Girls must attend as part of a school-sponsored group. Parents may only attend the event if they have been selected by their child's school as an official school chaperone. (If schools select a parent as an official chaperone, that is fine - but they must be part of the school group. Each group of 20 girls is permitted to have a maximum of two official chaperones.)
