Project Scientist is excited to parnter with Google Fiber to host a SciGirls Training in Charlotte, NC! These trainings are only offered every few years so you do not want to miss it! Lunch and snacks will be provided by Google Fiber.

SciGirls is an Emmy-award winning PBS KIDS television series and website dedicated to changing the way millions of girls think about STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). Local educators are invited to participate in a hands-on, minds-on Professional Development Training hosted by Project Scientist. We welcome you to practice proven strategies for engaging girls in STEM while building a device to measure wind speed, lighting up a room with dough creatures, and much more!

Participants attending this workshop will:

• Learn the latest research for exciting and engaging girls (and boys) in STEM

• Experience hands-on STEM activities • Leave with curriculum that puts a creative twist on teaching STEM

• Learn how to modify activities to engage kids in STEM using the SciGirls Seven

• Discover additional online resources that enhance teaching and learning experiences for all kids.

Everyone benefits from a gender-equitable approach to STEM! 

Participants will leave with curriculum and materials to use in your classroom as well as learn more about Project Scientist and how to get more involved (including employment) with the organization.
