We co-sponsor (with SFERE), a formal outreach program on STEM topics in energy called GirlTalk. The program encourages girls who exhibit an aptitude and desire to investigate careers in science, technology, engineering and math through interacting with career professionals. Our themes target the challenges in energy, climate and water in the 21st century and we work with faculty from both the Cockrell School of Engineering and the Jackson School of Geosciences. We have delivered GirlTalk workshops in a variety of formats in Dallas and the Rio Grande Valley area.

Girls in LabWe have an upcoming GirlTalk program at St. Gabriel's Catholic School in Austin, Texas on Saturday, April 13, 2013. You can read about the event in our news feature.
