Join us for a professional development workshop focused on inquiry-based STEM instruction with a commitment to gender equality.  This workshop is based on the hit PBS series, SciGirls whose goal is to encourage girls to choose careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). 

Educators 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.

In this workshop educators will learn how to re-shape current lesson plans to engage a wide variety of learners using twenty-first century skills. Participants will learn to use media in the classroom and explore circuits using play dough and other hands-on science activities aligned to New York State Learning Standards.

Participants will be provided with a take-home curriculum developed by SciGirls content specialists. 

This training is appropiate for educators working with students in 4th-8th grades.
