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 Training hosted by Wisconsin Northwest Region 4-H. We welcome you to practice proven strategies for engaging girls in STEM while building a deep sea diver, 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.
 
Everyone benefits from a gender-equitable approach to STEM!
 
The day of the training all you need to bring is a writing utensil and excitement to explore! Lunch is included for the training. If you have any food restrictions, please contact Charles Prissel at charle.prissel@ces.uwex.edu.

As this event is scheduled for a winter day in Wisconsin, we will of course pay close attention to the weather. Please make sure to include all of your contact information when you register and check your email the day before the event to see if there are any changes.
