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 a hands-on, minds-on Educator Training hosted by Simmons College. We welcome you to practice proven strategies for engaging girls in STEM. Participants attending this workshop will:

·         Learn the latest research for exciting and engaging girls (and boys) in STEM

·         Experience hands-on STEM activities

·         Gain access to free materials for hands-on, video-enhanced activities that put 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!
