At the Arizona Science, Technology, and Engineering Collaborative (ASTEC) Project for Girls Kick-Off Conference, we will launch our statewide initiative to increase girls’ involvement in STEM. At the Kick-Off you will connect and collaborate with other professionals in the area doing similar work, learn how you can get involved in ASTEC, and participate in a number of informative interactive presentations. Breakout sessions will be offered in the afternoon and an option tour of Biosphere 2 will begin at 4:00 pm for those who are interested (additional fee may apply). Registration includes lunch and materials.
Program managers, guidance counselors, business partners, technical professionals, K-12 teachers and parents, and representatives from professional organizations/ higher education are invited. Please download the conference flyer and share with others!
