Deadline soon for Wayne State girls' tech program

November 25, 2012

Since 2002, Wayne State University's College of Education has helped prepare girls for training and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through the GO-GIRL program. The GO-GIRL (Gaining Options-Girls Investigate Real Life) program, designed to promote interest in STEM related careers and to boost mathematics skills and confidence in seventh-grade girls, is accepting applications through Dec. 3 for the winter 2013 semester. The 10-week Saturday program, hosted by the College of Education, launches Jan. 26 on Wayne State's main campus. "GO-GIRL is much more than a one-time intervention program," said Sally Roberts, co-founder and director of the program. "It is a community that provides support and encouragement for both parents and their daughters as they prepare for college and beyond."
