Hands On!  in downtown Hendersonville North Carolina, is proud to present a SciGirls Professional Development Training November 3, 2014 8 AM - 4 PM.  
 
SciGirls is a PBS Kids television series out to change how tweens think about science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM!   In each episode, girls in your programs can join bright, curious real girls in putting STEM to work.  Then they can check out the PBS SciGirls website to play games, watch episodes, share projects, and connect with other SciGirls in a totally safe social networking environment!
 
SciGirls Trainings integrate inquiry-based STEM instruction with a commitment to gender equity.  Christi Whitworth, Education Director of Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute and the North Carolina Girls STEM Collaborative Lead guides this training.  Educators attending SciGirls Trainings will learn the latest research for exciting and engaging girls (and boys) in STEM; experience hands-on STEM activities; and gain access to free materials for hands-on, video-enhanced activities that put a creative twist on teaching STEM.
 
There is a $15 fee to attend this training. There are only 30 spaces open for this training!  Click the link below to register. Registration closes one week before the training date.  Lunch is on your own.  There are numerous places to eat on Main Street - pizza, pasta, sandwiches, burgers, hotdogs, thai, sushi. Plan to spend $10-$12 on lunch.
