Thank you for your interest in the free SciGirls Professional Development Training being held at the Crowne Plaza Baton Rouge and sponsored by the Louisiana STEM Girls Collaborative Project and Sci-Port: Louisiana's Science Center.

SciGirls is a PBS Kids television series out to change how millions of 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!

Participants are invited to attend this free full-day professional development opportunity and discover how to engage young women (ages 8-13) through inquiry-based STEM instruction with a commitment to gender equity. Participants 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.

All SciGirls activities and matching videos are aligned to national education standards including: Standards for Technological Literacy, Next Generation Science Standards and the Common Core standards for Mathematics.

The workshop will be facilitated by Lou Papai, SciGirls Regional Trainer, Lead for the Louisiana STEM Girls Collaborative Project and Director of Education at Sci-Port as well as SciGirls Outreach Specialists Sarah Carter and Niki Becker.
