About

STEM Girl Role Models Matter is an initiative to prepare STEM professionals for outreach. Research shows that role models are important for expanding career options and exposing girls to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) careers. Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont offers an exciting opportunity to help prepare organization leaders, educators, and volunteer trainers in how to increase and improve the quality of your organization's outreach to girls in STEM.

GSCP2P and Techbridge are sharing best practices on how to engage girls in science, technology and engineering through hands-on activities, real-world applications and career connections. After taking a part in the Role Models Matter Online Training, participants will walk away with tips for connecting with girls, strategies to highlight how cool and important science, technology and engineering careers are to society. You will be able to focus on ways to dispel common stereotypes and will receive a best practice toolkit with resources for classroom/troop visits and hosting field trips.

How do you spark a girl’s interest in STEAM? Are you a role model in someone’s life? Maybe you are a role model and don’t even realize it! If you are a parent, volunteer, aunt, uncle, grandparent or teacher, then consider taking this opportunity to be a part of the Role Models Matter Online Training.

Our Role Models Matter program connects students with women and men working in the STEAM fields. Fame isn’t a prerequisite to volunteering as a role model, just a willingness to share your story, letting girls hear firsthand what it’s like to have a career in the fields of STEAM and what it takes to get there.

This may be something entirely different for you, but anyone (yes, this includes men) interested in learning these methods that can be used in other scenarios is encouraged and welcome to take this online training
