Who: The Center for STEM Education for Girls is hosting its annual STEM Think Tank and Conference. We are expecting approximately 300 participants from the following groups:

  • Members of industry


What: The organizing team – the STEM Consortium – has selected this year's conference them: "Disrupting Silos and Creating STEM Habits of Mind."

Areas of focus for the 2017 Think Tank and Conference are the following:

  • Partnerships for Change– Partnerships between and among K12, industry, informal, university, counselors, parents, private, public, etc.  What are these effective partnerships and how can they be replicated?
  • STEM+ Connections with STEM and all disciplines, including art, foreign language, English/Language Arts, history, computer science etc. in both formal and informal learning
  • Social Entrepreneurship and Public Purpose - How is STEM being used to address issues of social justice, social need, service learning for the good of public purpose?
  • Computer Science - What are the specific ways in which girls are succeeding in computer science?  What encourages them to participate?


When:  Exhibits will be open Thursday, July 13, 2017, from 8:00AM-4:00PM.

Where:  The Harpeth Hall School, Nashville, TN

Why:  The Think Tank and Conference will produce new connections and conversations among K12 teachers, university faculty and administration, informal education, and members of industry.  Each group has lessons learned about creating successful programs for females.  It’s time that we communicate across these groups effectively – both to teach and to learn.
