Call for Presenters
Help Keep Girls in Math, Science, and Technology Classes and Encourage Them in Career Choices
Greetings Women Professionals!
Numerous studies show that outreach by professional women to girls in the middle school years can keep girls in math, science, and computer classes throughout their high school years and beyond. Please volunteer to participate in “Technology: Futures Unlimited,” our annual math/science/technology career exploration day for sixth, seventh and eighth grade girls on Saturday, March 17, 2012 at Woodson High School in Fairfax, Virginia.
The career day is sponsored by the American Association of University Women. The career day is designed to provide 7th and 8th grade girls an opportunity to meet women professionals in careers using math, science, and/or technology. Approximately 300 students are expected to attend this event. Fifteen to twenty five students will attend each workshop. Presenters provide two or three 45 minute workshops in more that twenty career fields that give the girls an idea about what a career in a field of math, science, or technology is like. We need your help!
Fill out the enclosed volunteer presenter form and send it to us as soon as possible so that we can plan for the event. If possible include a copy of your professional biography so that we can use it for the program and promotional purposes for the event. We will contact you in March to confirm your schedule and give you directions to the school. Also, we will have a first-time presenters meeting in March to help first-time presenters develop presentations.
Please make copies of this Call for Presenters and pass it to friends, coworkers, and colleagues. We need commitments as soon as possible, preferably no later than February 17, 2012.
We look forward to your participation. If you have questions, please contact me.
