Thank you for your interest in the free SciGirls Professional Development Training being held at the Shreve Memorial Library, Broadmoor Branch and hosted by 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 girls ages 8-13 (and boys) 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. He is a certified SciGirls trainer, Collaborative Lead for the Louisiana STEM Girls Collaborative Project, certified trainer for the Girls RISE Network, and the Director of Education at Sci-Port: Louisiana’s Science Center.
