We need a microbiologist or someone knowledgeable in bacteria and antibiotic resistance to assist me and my partner Lexi in our year long research project at Minnetonka High School. We are planning on testing phytochemical-antibiotic combinations on both gram positive and gram negative bacteria to see if there is synergistic, additive, or no difference in the bactericidal activity. We would love someone to be able to help answer our questions as we go along with the project!

I am writing to you as a community partner to express the need for your support of the Ladies of Westside Project which takes place at Westside High School in Jacksonville, FL. The project is an in depth training and support mentorship program to teach our teen girls how to ready themselves for their future. As a teacher at a Title 1 school, I have witnessed firsthand how our teen girls have been rendered incapable of dealing with the simplest demands in their lives. Many come from single family homes and are left to raise themselves. Here is some data to keep in mind specifically regarding our teens: • Duval County has a graduation rate of 49.9 percent • Each year there are about 5,550 projected drop-outs • 1,479 teen births • 56 percent of students were eligible for free or reduced-price lunch Mission: Ladies of Westside is a movement to unify and empower young women to build their confidence, enhance wisdom, expand knowledge, and develop life skills to inspire others.

I am the Program Director of the Mid-Atlantic region for Invest in Girls, Inc. (investgirls.org). I learned about MWM at an event I attended a few months ago at the invitation of Brian Dulay from the Maryland Business Roundtable. Our program delivers financial literacy education to high school girls in grades 10-12 through in-school workshops, field trips to financial services companies, and role model exposure. I would like to connect with women in the Baltimore City area who: - work in finance, accounting, applied mathematics in the realm of finance (quantitative analysts, etc.) - have an interest in sharing their stories with the young women in our program; i.e. how they became interested in finance/accounting/math - would be willing to commit to visiting several schools over the course of the year for 1-2 hours at a time - would be open to beginning a sponsorship/mentoring relationship w/ girls who express an interest in majoring in finance/accounting/math

I would like to set up workshops and internships to encourage young women in our (very) rural area to think of ways they can create something that the community needs, doing something they love. We are a very agriculture focused region but this is changing quite rapidly as our area becomes focused on growth through technology and environmental changes. Young girls in our area typically don't come back after college. I want to encourage these young girls & women in our area to embrace the possibility of being part of something other than farming, while remaining in our community.

I would like to request a mentor to judge our science fair in February and a mentor to speak at our Space Day in April. Westview does not have many girls and many times I feel they are marginalized because the boys are so overrepresented in our school. I think it would be an excellent opportunity for our girls to interact with women who excel in the STEM fields.

Salem and Cumberland Counties are the most economically depressed counties in the state of New Jersey, but they are often overlooked for programs for youth. Lacking large industry and being mostly farming communities, resources are scarce and opportunities lacking particularly for the underserved populations. We have also seen that it is particularly difficult to get girls in STEM through high school and the few that we do see progress usually do not end up pursuing STEM education in post secondary avenues. There are also few role models in these counties. This year, we will pilot a program in July, 2017 called It’s a Girls World Inc. that will focus on girls entering 7,8, and 9th grades providing a three year program with two weeks face to face in the summer focusing on career options in STEM and will include 4 half days of face to face mentoring and a virtual year round mentoring program. Mentors will be trained prior to the start of the program
