Model Overview

Girls working together on a project.This model includes a number of strategic activities:

  1. Implementation of Collaborative Model: Train and mentor regional participants in how to create STEM-related collaborations and assist these collaborative networks in creating action plans which utilize research-based promising practices in the areas of informal learning and evaluation and assessment. AAUW regional liaisons provide support to regional collaboratives through an in-depth knowledge of the NGCP model and a connection to AAUW and other regional efforts to improve opportunities for girls in STEM.
  2. Dissemination and Outreach: In partnership with regional and professional organizations, document and promote coordination and collaboration among girl-serving STEM programs throughout the United States and Puerto Rico by implementing an on-going communication system linking these organizations.
  3. Collaboration Support: Offer mini-grants to girl-serving STEM-focused programs as an incentive to collaborate and to assist in informal learning and assessment and evaluation activities and projects.
  4. Research Evaluation: Conduct evaluation of the NGCP to determine effectiveness of collaboration and the impact of collaboration and implementation of STEM research-based promising practices at national, regional, and local levels.
