KC STEM Alliance, a not-for-profit collaborative network of educators, businesses, and related organizations working to inspire interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math in the greater Kansas City region, recently released a new report and five-part video series, Closing the Gender Gap in STEM. The publication delves into how the Kansas City region is moving to close the gender gap in STEM, specifically through methods deployed in K-12 education.
The report was released just before Women’s History Month, which highlights the contributions of women to society. For the month, Google Fiber is featuring excerpts of the report on their Twitter account, shedding more light on the subject and raising the profile of KC STEM Alliance on the national stage.
In addition to the report and five-part video series, KC STEM Alliance is providing a resource list including links to books, movies, and activities geared for each age group, to inspire K-12 girls to explore STEM during Women’s History Month and beyond.
