Join Jenn Baumstein, SciGirls Connect Trainer, and Director of Community Engagement for WMHT Public Media, for a FREE SciGirls PD. Learn about the myriad ways in which SciGirls can be used in your program to encourage STEM-based learning for all students, not just girls! Explore the SciGirls Seven, and practice some of the activities created by the SciGirls team.


SciGirls is an Emmy- award winning PBS KIDS television series and website dedicated to changing the way millions of girls think about STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). Local educators are invited to participate in Hands-on, minds- On Professional Development Training hosted by WMHT Public Media/PBS. We welcome you to practice proven strategies for engaging girls in STEM while building a device to measure wind speed, lighting 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 kids in STEM using the SciGirls Seven

• Discover additional online resources that enhance teaching and learning experiences for all kids.


Everyone benefits from a gender-equitable approach to STEM!
