This week’s Wednesday Workshop will focus on Gender Equity: Recruitment and Retention of Girls in STEM and will be presented by Celestia Cazalet (Elaine Plybon RL).
Enrollment of girls in higher level science, technology, engineering, and math programs is traditionally much lower than that of boys. Is there something we, as teachers, can do to turn this trend around and increase the number of girls who pursue careers in STEM areas? This workshop will use interactive technologies and discussion groups to brainstorm ideas of how to address this issue in our schools. Come with an open mind and be prepared to think, evaluate, and share.
SLT TIME: 5 p.m. SLT ( 7 p.m. CST, 8 p.m. EST)
