PACER, Green Girls STEM Foundation to host professional development training
Minneapolis: A SciGirls STEM Training, hosted by PACER Center and the Green Girls STEM Foundation, will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 11 at PACER, 8161 Normandale Blvd., Bloomington. Educators are invited to participate in a hands-on, minds-on professional development training.
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). Participants attending this workshop will experience hands-on STEM activities and leave with curriculum that puts a creative twist on teaching STEM.
Participants will also learn how to modify activities to engage kids in STEM using the “SciGirls Seven” and discover additional online resources that enhance teaching and learning experiences for all kids. This free event includes lunch.
The training is co-sponsored by the Eagan-based Green Girls STEM Foundation, which supports and encourages kids (especially girls) to participate in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activities. For information, visit www.ggstemfoundation.com.
