New to IGNITE Worldwide?

We'd love to help you start an IGNITE Worldwide chapter in your school or district! Please first subscribe to our Teacher Mailing List, and then take our Teacher Training. If you have any questions, please contact becky@ignite-worldwide.org.

IGNITE Panels

Panel presentations are IGNITE's magic! They are unique events that spark girls' curiosity in STEM. We recommend that IGNITE chapters host a panel at the beginning of the school year, and another just before class registration. This way, students know all about opportunities in STEM before registering for classes and/or attending an IGNITE Field Trip.

IGNITE Panels are in-school STEM career presentations for girls & non-binary students.  Students will hear from professional women in STEM fields, who share about their journey to a career in STEM, obstacles overcome, and advice they have for students. The second-half of the panel is a Q&A discussion during which the speakers and students get to connect more closely.

To host a panel, please fill out your region's Host a Panel Form and IGNITE will recruit speakers for you.

You can read about recent IGNITE Panels on our blog to learn more.

Field Trips

IGNITE Worldwide partners with a list of amazing companies who are ready to host a group of girls and provide them with a memorable and inspiring experience!

Field Trips typically start at 10AM and end at 1-2PM. All Field Trips include an introduction to the work environment, a STEM-related activity or workshop, lunch, and a panel presentation with women in STEM at the company.

All of IGNITE Worldwide's field trip partners are dedicated to providing your students with a fantastic experience to spark their interest in STEM. You can read about recent IGNITE Field Trips on our blog to learn more.
