Presenter Information

Invitation to Present!

We invite you to facilitate a hands-on session (45 minutes) for a group of 15-20 students to highlight a STEM topic and/or career in order to instill awareness, excitement, and passion for STEM disciplines!

The goal of the Women in STEM program at BGSU is to provide a rewarding experience for 6th - 8th graders that connects STEM education to the real world and sparks an interest in pursuing STEM majors in high school and beyond and ultimately STEM careers.

Women in STEM provides young students with a positive experience at BGSU and offers them a variety of engaging hands-on activities that allows them the opportunity to learn and interact with a wide variety of successful STEM role models. 

The day will begin with a keynote presentation followed by breakout sessions that provide hands-on, fun-filled, critical thinking/learning activities. Women in STEM will help young students recognize the wide array of options available in STEM fields, inspiring them to take classes in the STEM fields throughout their educational careers.   

There will be groups of approximately 15 -20 students with adult supervision in each break-out session. Sessions should include innovative and creative hands-on activities that are fun-filled and engaging. We would like to foster a collaborative growth-minded atmosphere in the breakout sessions that gives students opportunities to interact with one another and YOU as a STEM academic/career role model. 

We rely on the support of our presenters and volunteers like you in order to continue to provide this unique experience for this age group. We are thrilled to host the 39th annual Women in STEM program at BGSU and look forward to your participation!

We invite submission of proposals for presentations at the November 2023 Women in STEM on Tuesday, November 1st, at Bowling Green State University. 

We provide classroom and/or lab space, AV equipment, and support.
