SciGirls is an Emmy-award winning PBS KIDS television series and website dedicated to changing the way millions of girls think about STEM. Local educators are invited to participate in a hand-on, minds-on Professional Development Training for adults interested in working with "tweens" hosted by The Science Museum of Western Virginia.  

We welcome you to practice proven strategies for engaging girls in STEM while building a device to measure wind speed, light 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 youth in STEM using the SciGirls Seven

 

Discover additional online resources that enhance teaching and learning experiences for all youth
