TN Girls in STEM

What is TGIS at Vol State?

TGIS stands for TN Girls in STEM. TGIS at Vol State is a one-day STEM conference for 5th-9th grade girls and is held on the first Saturday in October each year on the Vol State campus in Gallatin. (This year, however, the conference has been moved online via Zoom.)

TGIS at Vol State was first launched in October 2016, under its former name Vol State Expanding Your Horizons (EYH). The mission of TGIS at Vol State is to provide role modeling to girls and inspire them to pursue opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Our workshops feature fun and hands-on activities in a variety of areas in STEM.

This annual conference is made possible by the collaborative work of Vol State faculty, staff, and students, as well as industry partners. It has served hundreds of girls from nearby counties since first started and has been growing bigger each year.

Please join us on Saturday, October 2nd for an online STEM conference via Zoom meeting! Workshop Zoom links will be emailed to your registered email address by the end of September.
