Local educators are invited to participate in a fun, activity-filled SciGirls CONNECT full-day workshop hosted by the Pacific Northwest Girls Collaborative Project. We welcome you to practice proven strategies for engaging girls in STEM while building a device to measure wind speed and lighting up a room with dough creatures, among others! SciGirls CONNECT is an education program for staff and educators interested in engaging girls in STEM and learning 20 hands-on, video enhanced STEM activities. This training was developed as the outreach component of SciGirls, an Emmy-award winning PBS KIDS weekly series and website. Participants attending this workshop will also:

 
• 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 any activity to engage kids in STEM using the SciGirls Seven
• Discover additional online resources that enhance teaching and learning experiences for all kids.

*Workshop cost includes lunch and materials.

While SciGirls is focused on girls, the materials are engaging and interesting for both girls and boys and the material learned in the training will enhance both formal and informal STEM education experiences.
