The Montana Girls STEM Collaborative Project brings together organizations throughout Montana that are committed to informing and motivating girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
The Women’s foundation recently funded this organization’s STEM Role Models Matter (RMM) training in three different formats to those in Montana interested in serving as a mentor to girls.
Research shows that role models are the best ambassadors for helping girls envision a career in STEM. However, not every STEM professional or student is confident in her ability to effectively engage with girls. Through RMM, a national research-based curriculum, STEM role models learn key strategies for making a meaningful connection with girls around STEM careers.
