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 workshop hosted by the Challenger Learning Center of Northern Nevada. We welcome you to learn more about and practice research-based strategies for engaging girls in STEM while building a device to measure wind speed, lighting up a room with dough creatures, solving a mystery, and more!

SciGirls workshop participants will:

• Learn about 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!
