Behind the Scenes | NGCP Webcast

On Tuesday, February 11, 2009, SciGirls staffers Kathy Shugrue (Development Producer), Lisa Regalla (Science Editor) and Joan Freese (Web Producer) will participate in a webcast with our friends at the National Girls Collaborative Project, based in Seattle. The title of the session is: Best Practices in Creating Successful Collaborations: Lessons Learned from the National Girls Collaborative Project.

Log in from from 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Pacific to hear Karen Peterson, Principal Investigator of the NGCP speak about collaborations. Karen is also the co-PI on the SciGirls television project. She'll be introducing us as a "collaboration in progress."

The NGCP works to strengthen capacity of existing girl-serving STEM projects by sharing promising practices, research findings and program models. Their free monthly webcasts feature practitioners and researchers from across the country who gather to share effective strategies for working with girls in STEM.
