SciGirls is an Emmy-award winning PBS KIDS television series and website dedicated to changeing 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 hosted by The GLOBE Program. We welcome you to practice proven strategies for engaging girls in STEM while lighting up a room with dough creatures, solving a forensic mystery and much more! Participants attending the workshop will:

  • Learn the latest research for exciting and engaging girls (and boys) in STEM
  • Experience hands-on STEM activities
  • Leave with a 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.
  • Learn how to relate GLOBE activities to the SciGirls Seven

Everyone benefits from a gender-equitable approach to STEM!
