SciGirls is an Emmy-award winning PBS KIDS television series and website dedicated to changing the way millions of girls think about STEM. Local educators are invited to participate in a hand-on, minds-on Professional Development Training hosted by the Challenger Learning Center at Heartland Community College.  We welcome you to practice proven strategies for engaging girls in STEM while building a device to measure wind speed, light 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 youth in STEM using the SciGirls Seven
