The Kentucky Girls STEM Collaborative Project's vision is to network girls and girl-serving organizations across the Commonwealth to build a stronger science, technology, engineering and math future workforce in Kentucky. http://www.pugetsoundcenter.org/ngcp/kentucky/index.html
TEAMS is a national high school engineering competition that includes real-world engineering challenges in a fun and fast-paced environment that inspires creativity, teamwork, critical thinking and peer-to-peer cooperation. This is open to students in grades 9-12. The competition is a one-day, two-part academic competition that incorporates several academic areas. The experience is designed to introduce students to an "engineering team" work environment. Students can compete for local, state, and national awards and recognition. The University of Kentucky's College of Engineering will be awarding $4000 scholarships to each student on the winning varsity team for the local competition. Metty Joseph, email@example.com
The Engineering Summer Program, sponsored by the University of Kentucky's College of Engineering is a one-week invitational residential program for Kentucky's top, rising high school seniors. http://www.engr.uky.edu/outreach/ProgramsListing.html
Girls Enjoy Math and Science (GEMS): an annual event at the University of Kentucky that provides hands-on opportunities for Girl Scouts ranging from 4th grade through high school to learn about math and science in a fun environment on campus. Workshop topics have included bridge building, circuit building, bone examination, living and working in space and many others. Engineering, psychology, physiology, dentistry, biology, chemistry and physics have been represented in these workshops. Please see the attached agenda from the Spring, 2007 program: http://www.engr.uky.edu/news/documents/GEMS2007agenda_002.doc

Project Lead the Way (PLTW): a middle and high school project and problem based contextual learning curriculum that has helped thousands of students achieve their STEM goals. PLTW's hands-on, project-based curriculum provides girls a taste of the variety, creativity, teamwork, and possibilities engineering and technical careers can offer. PLTW makes math and science relevant for students. By engaging in hands-on, real-world projects, students understand how the skills they are learning in the classroom can be applied in everyday life. For more information on PLTW and how your school can implement, please contact Dr. Metty Joseph at (859) 257-0552 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact Dianne Leveridge at (859) 257-0553 or email@example.com.
