Past Events

Girls Day Out
June 16, 2009

 A Teacher's Workshop and Girls Day Out was held at the Student Center, University of Kentucky. The workshop allowed a more personal and in-depth discussion, with Ms. Sanders addressing the latest research on gender biased classroom interaction. While the teachers were learning, so were 43 young girls attending "Girls Day Out." They scratched the surface of STEM by touring engineering labs at the University of Kentucky, visiting a newly updated digital television productions studio (Kentucky Education Television), and experiencing the new technology in use at a local agriculture farm.
