The Student Research Foundation has been pleased to partner with the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) for several years, supporting girls’ and young women’s access to, and participation in, STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).  We collaborate on our annual research project, created by the Research Consortium on STEM Career Pathways, engaging high school students and their teachers.

We would like to share several resources created by NGCP that we think will be useful to STEM teachers and out-of-school time STEM program leaders:

State of Girls and Women in STEM

This updated NGCP resource presents a high-level summary of the most compelling statistics and research on the state of girls and women in STEM, focused on K-12 Education, Higher Education, and the STEM Workforce. The report highlights the impacts of intersectional inequalities, as Latina, Black, and Indigenous women represent less than 10% of the STEM workforce. NGCP has also created a tool kit with graphics of statistics and research. These free graphics can be used on social media and in presentations.

Exemplary Practices Resource Page Updates

NGCP has updated their Exemplary Practices resource pages for Engaging Girls in STEM and Access and Equity.  Check out the two collections of research-based publications, and webinars to inform education, programming, presentations, and proposal writing related to equity and STEM education. Resources highlight gender equitable and culturally responsive strategies and program examples on topics such as: broadening participation of girls and women in computing; disability justice in STEM education; and, culturally responsive programming for Indigenous youth.
