Projects & Campaigns
Join NCGS on June 21, 2011 as we celebrate 20 years of NCGS schools leading the way for girls and STEM with Advancing Girls in STEM: An NCGS Symposium. Returning to the site of our first STEM symposium in 1991, Wellesley College in Wellesley, Massachusetts, we will host an event that will highlight nationally-renowned speakers, present original research, and share innovative ways to engage and retain girls in the STEM fields.
And please join us, as well, the night before as we gather with the extended NCGS community-schools, alumnae, friends, and former colleagues-at Southfield School in Brookline, Massachusetts, to kick off a year-long celebration of NCGS' own 20th anniversary. Be on the lookout for more details about these events - we look forward to celebrating with you!
