The 2013 Girls Raised in Tennessee Science (GRITS) Collaborative Project Conference in MTSU’s Tom H. Jackson Building included a special workshop by Techbridge called “Role Models Matter” on Feb. 7. See a video report from the workshop below.
This year’s GRITS conference theme was “Building STEM Capacity for Girls in the South.” STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Dr. Judith Iriarte-Gross is director of MTSU’s Women in STEM Center and a chemistry professor.
