Join authors Harriet S. Mosatche and Susan Matloff-Nieves as they lead an intimate conversation on how we can keep girls’ enthusiasm for science, math, and technology from fading. Based on the insightful tips noted in their book, Breaking Through! Helping Girls Succeed in Science Math, Technology, Engineering, and Math, this interactive workshop will include practical examples and ideas on taking action inside and outside of the classroom. A select number of books will be given away to those in attendance, and a book signing will follow the event.
