The Gender Gap in STEM is No Game

Friday, June 28, 2013 at 3:00pm to 5:00pm

West Village F, 250

Two hours talking innovation in STEM education. Two hours brainstorming with leading problem solvers in game design, computers, education, and economic development. Two hours kick-starting an initiative that, if successful, will change the world. If that seems like two hours well spent, then join us this Friday, June 28, across regions

The Gender Gap in STEM is No Game

On June 28, you can help shape the first-ever game designed to close the STEM gender gap.

We know kids learn from games. We know only 14.5% of girls show interest in STEM. We know STEM is on the forefront of innovation and economic opportunity in our region and around the world. We know we have a problem.

The good news is, we have a solution:

G.A.M.E.S.
Girls Advancing in Math, Engineering and Science
This is REAL. Like all good games, this project is about strategy and action.

Help us build an 18-month strategic plan to develop a compelling game that will inspire girls to pursue STEM careers. This is your opportunity to be a part of something that will change the lives of kids in our community and drive innovation at the businesses and organizations shaping our region’s future and impacting the world.

We need leaders like you.

Join top game design firms, STEM leaders, civic, technology, business, and education leaders, the National Girls Collaborative Project, the Institute of Systems Biology (ISB) and Northeastern University - all committed to the development and success of G.A.M.E.S.

This is real. This is G.A.M.E.S.

We want you in at the launch on June 28.
