STEM Education for Girls in PA

May 26, 2016 at Delaware Valley University

The fifth annual #girlSTEM Conference will be held on Thursday, May 26, 2016 at Delaware Valley University. #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. #girlSTEM is open to school-sponsored groups of girls in grades 6-10.

New Registration Process for 2016!
Bucks County School Districts and Nonpublic Schools will be allotted seats to #girlSTEM.
(District leadership will be notified of their allotment by November 1, 2015)
 
On February 1, school district and nonpublic school leadership will pre-register for #girlSTEM (a link will be sent directly to school and district leadership), indicating how many girls they plan to bring to the conference. Any unused seats will then be available by request. Pre-registration will close on Friday, February 12.
 
On April 1, school districts and nonpublic schools (that have pre-registered) will officially register their groups.

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.)
