5 pm – 6:30 pm
Professional Development Units will be available for this event.
Students involved with Bradley’s Professional Master Of Arts In STEM Education program will provide insignt into innovative resources and strategies for reaching youth through STEM Education.
Additionally, learn from teachers who participated as learners and group facilitators as part of our 4G STEM Camp during the summer (Girls + Games + Gadgets = Genius). As part of that experience, they saw first-hand career exploration activities with middle school girls and were part of the reflection/facilitation activities of each of their small groups. After that week of camp, they were asked to think about how they could implement elements of what they had learned into STEM career exploration activities in their own classroom.
Teacher Tuesdays is a networking event designed to foster peer-to-peer support for learning. Building a learning community around Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM)Education for our region.
