Join us for a professional development workshop focused on inquiry-based STEM instruction with a commitment to gender equality.  This workshop is based on the hit PBS series, SciGirls whose goal is to encourage girls to choose careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). 

SciGirls is a PBS Kids television series out to change how tweens think about science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM! In each episode, join bright, curious real girls in putting STEM to work. Then check out the 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. 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 no fee for the training. We will be providing lunch for a $10 fee. You are able to bring your own lunch if you would like.

Training will be held on Wednesday, August 12th from 9A-4P at the Terre Haute Children’s Museum (727 Wabash Ave. Terre Haute, IN 47807).
