“It helped reinforce what I’m already doing while giving me the tools to change what needs to be changed.”
“I’m glad I came today!! It was nice to connect w/some other science teachers who are teaching in private schools. For me it was nice to see some of the engineering/coding tech for kids. Fun things to try to bring to my students!!”
“I was not sure how to start a STEM program or how to find resources. This has been helpful for me to figure out what to do.”
“I have more ideas for our makerspace and how to incorporate STEM throughout my curriculum.”
