Closing the Gender Gap in STEM: The Middle School Experience
July 7, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 amFree
Join the KC STEM Alliance in the second of this five-part series of conversations to explore the ways our region is moving to close the gender gap in STEM.
Moderated by Dr. Margery Sendze, the interactive series will look at key influences and success stories at each stage of STEM education—from kindergarten through high school. Panelists will include community and corporate partners, mentors, parents, teachers, students and women with STEM careers. Join us at 9 a.m. on consecutive Tuesdays as we answer your questions and explore what’s working and why and work to identify gaps and consider how to address them.
