Calling all organizations, schools and individuals involved in science, technology, engineering and math outreach and recruitment in and around Waco! We invite you to participate in a hands-on, minds-on Professional Development Training hosted by the Texas Girls Collaborative Project and Texas State Technical College (TSTC).

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). We welcome you to practice proven strategies for engaging girls in STEM while building a device to measure wind speed, lighting 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 kids in STEM using the SciGirls Seven
  • Discover additional online resources that enhance teaching and learning experiences for all kids.

There is no cost for attending this training. Participants attending agree to offer one SciGirls program or event (minimum of 1 hour) for girls, ages 8-13, using the associated activities within one year of professional development.

Everyone benefits from a gender-equitable approach to STEM! Spaces are limited to 30 participants. Lunch and CPE credits will be provided to educators.

REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT IS NOW CLOSED. THIS TRAINING IS LIMITED TO 30 PARTICIPANTS. IF YOU WISH TO BE ADDED TO THE WAITLIST PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO DIDEYMUNIZ@MAIL.UTEXAS.EDU. YOU WILL BE CONTACTED BY EMAIL IF A SPACE BECOMES AVAILABLE.
