The Mid-Atlantic Girls Collaborative (MAGIC) and the Emmy award-winning PBS’ Design Squad Nation will host a one-day training to discuss how together we can boost girls’ interest in engineering using multimedia resources and activities from PBS’ Design Squad Nation. We invite members of the education and engineering communities – including, but not limited to, afterschool providers, school administrators, engineers, technical professionals, business partners, members of professional organizations, k-12 educators, and university educators to join us! When participants leave the training, they will have a clear sense of purpose and several collaborative opportunities penciled into their calendar – and the resources to inspire girls’ interest!
