GiSTEM Week is our week-long program that focuses on one STEM + Business (B) subject per day. Each subject-focused day will have professionals from the field discuss their career journey- including their roles at their respective companies, any challenges and advice to help the participants in their own journey. Participants will be exposed to hands on activities and real-world problems to teach foundational STEM+B skills. The skills will involve group projects that allow the participants to create and present their innovative solution to their guardians, GiSTEM volunteers and sponsors at the end of the week. We will be accepting 16 girls (rising 8th - 12th graders) into the program.
Number of Participants
There will be 10 - 16 girls (middle school and high school)
The dates for speakers are based on their field (July 11, 2022 - July 15, 2022). We will confirm your date after review of your application below.
No public participants. Board members and volunteers will be in attendance.
Your presentation should highlight your career journey (challenges, successes, tips) and importance of women in your field. We are open to hands-on activities that reflect your expertise. We ask that you share your activity with us in advance, so that our virtual participants will have the appropriate items provided to them.
The presentation will be 100% virtual; however, we recommend the format to be one of the following:
1. Virtual speaking engagement (Speaking only, no presentation)
2. Virtual speaking engagement with a presentation (Powerpoint, images, etc)
3. Virtual interactive engagement (hands-on activity with the participants)
Speaker Informational Briefings
There will be three short preparation meetings prior to the event on June 9, June 10 or June 11, 2022. Please choose one date to attend to get the final details and any remaining questions answered prior to the event.
