SciGirls Professional Development Training in Lisbon Falls, Maine
Thank you for your interest in the SciGirls Professional Development Training being held at the University of Maine Cooperative Extension office and co-sponsored by the University of Maine College of Engineering and the office of University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H.
SciGirls is a PBS Kids television series out to change how millions of tweens think about science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM! In each episode, join bright, curious real girls in putting STEM to work. Then check out the website to play games, watch episodes, share projects, and connect with other SciGirls in a totally safe social networking environment!
Participants are invited to attend this free professional development opportunity and discover how to engage young women (ages 8-13) through inquiry-based STEM instruction with a commitment to gender equity. Educators attending SciGirls Trainings 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.
