 Members of the Montana Girls STEM Collaborative Project, which is powered by Montana NSF EPSCoR, present "Why So Few?: Engaging Girls in STEM" 

It's no secret that women are under-represented in careers and studies in science, technology, engineering, and math fields.  But research shows that girls and boys show no significant difference in their abilities to excel in STEM.  So why are far fewer girls choosing this path?  And, more importantly, what can we do about it?  Whether you are an educator, a parent, or just someone interested in this topic, come join Suzi Taylor and Martha Peters, co-leaders for the Montana Girls STEM Collaborative Project, for research, opinions, new ideas, and group discussion.

This event is part of the Montana State University Women's Center Sack Lunch Seminar series.
