Ready to Inspire?
We are looking for a diverse group of women in STEAM fields to share their knowledge with our students! Our workshop leaders will act as role models to our girls: testaments to what they can accomplish.
The goal of the workshops is to inform, inspire, and engage our students. We recommend incorporating an interactive or hands-on portion into your workshop. This can be an experiment, an exercise, a relevant game, artifacts or equipment, or a team activity. Your imagination is the limit!
Full STEAM Ahead will be held at the VCU Engineering Buildings on Saturday, June 29th, 2019. The conference will last from approximately 8:30 am until 4:30 pm. Workshops will last about 1 hour and accommodate no more than 25 middle school students. A final schedule for the day, including workshop session times, will be announced with our selected Workshop Leaders. See an example of 2018’s schedule here.
Volunteers will be available to assist as needed with activities or procedures during workshops sessions. Remember- our students are excited to learn about who you are and why you are passionate about your career! Your energy will leave a powerful impression.
