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 Professional Development Training led by Twin Cities Environmental Education Consulting, LLC and hosted by Curious Minds, LLC in Bloomington, MN.

We welcome you to practice proven strategies for engaging girls in STEM while building a deep sea diver that neither sinks nor floats, 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!
  
**At the end of this training there will be a brief evaluation.  If you bring a laptop and wi-fi is available you can complete it electronically.  Otherwise, paper copies will be available.

***CEUs are available upon request. 

This is a FREE training for educators through a grant from the National Science Foundation!!
