Webinar Archive

The NGCP works to strengthen the capacity of existing girl-serving STEM projects by sharing exemplary practices, research findings and program models. One method we use to achieve this goal is a series of free webinars in which practitioners and researchers from across the country share effective strategies for working with girls in STEM.

You may access the audio/video content and related materials from any of our archived webinars by selecting the webinar title in the list below.

"NGCP provides information regarding all aspects of STEM through newsletters and webinars and keeps up my motivation to strive for higher levels of collaboration.
