As teachers prepare to adapt to new circumstances, we are offering two STEM education webinars that are free of charge to teachers everywhere. Both webinars will showcase unique STEM activities that require no special equipment or background knowledge. They are designed to be flexible while still providing guidance and frameworks. Participants will leave with a sound understanding of how to get their students to view their own environments through the lens of STEM as well as activities that involve critical thinking and teamwork. There are limited spots.
NOTE: The confirmation email that you receive after registering for a webinar will give you access to the zoom meeting. The zoom meeting will unlock on the event page at the start of the session. You can also find the zoom invite by clicking on “view event details” on the event page. Respond to this email with any questions!
