Since 2002, Wayne State University’s College of Education has helped prepare girls for training and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through the GO-GIRL program. The GO-GIRL (Gaining Options-Girls Investigate Real Life) program, designed to promote interest in STEM related careers and to boost mathematics skills and confidence in seventh-grade girls, is accepting applications through Dec. 3 for the winter 2013 semester. The 10-week Saturday program, hosted by the College of Education, launches Jan. 26 on Wayne State’s main campus. “GO-GIRL is much more than a one-time intervention program,” said Sally Roberts, co-founder and director of the program. “It is a community that provides support and encouragement for both parents and their daughters as they prepare for college and beyond.”
