Saturday, Nov. 16 – Women in Science & Engineering Career Connections
9 a.m.-2 p.m.
Teachers can make a real difference in helping girls develop a “STEM identity” that will give them the confidence to persist in engineering, physics, math, and computer science. In this workshop, teachers will try out teaching strategies shown to increase girls’ interest in STEM subjects. Teachers will meet with a panel of professional women in STEM careers to discuss implicit bias, stereotype threat, and the importance of female role models. In addition, they will attend a showcase of electronics projects made by middle school-age Girl Scouts.
Includes 5 hours of Act 48 credit, lunch, and museum admission, $50 per attendee.
