Due to some technical issues with the original recording, a new recording of the June NGCP Webcast “The Society of Women Engineers and 4-H: Resources and Partnerships to enhance girl-focused STEM programming” is now available at: http://connectpro35337274.adobeconnect.com/p8u044afut2/?launcher=false&fcsContent=true&pbMode=normal.
Two national organizations working to increase equity in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and 4-H, will share resources available for practitioners working with girls in STEM and opportunities for partnership at the regional and local level. Founded in 1950, the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is the driving force that establishes engineering as a highly desirable career aspiration for women. SWE offers resources for girls, parents, educators and engineers including scholarships, hands-on events, connections to partners, and trainings. 4-H is a positive youth development organization that is working to reach a bold goal of engaging one million new young people in science programs by 2013. 4-H offers a variety of science-related tools and resources and opportunities to partner at a local level.
