Why STEM? Communicating Your School's Approach to STEM Education

STEM Professional Development Webinar
January 28, 2021
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Session Content

Join Beth Murphy, MISF’s STEM Program Manager and independent STEM education consultant, to explore why STEM education matters. In this interactive webinar, Beth will lead participants through interpreting the goals laid out in Charting a Course for Success: America’s Strategy for STEM Education, a framework designed to guide any organization that provide STEM-related learning experiences. We will work together to identify the many ways K-12 schools contribute to achieving these goals as they prepare young people for life and work. Finally, each participant will identify the unique and authentic ways that their school’s STEM program connects with these broader community goals. This webinar is appropriate for anyone looking to better articulate the difference made by their school’s STEM program—whether under development or established. Each school that registers for this webinar will also receive an invitation to sign up for a free 30-minute consultation with Beth to discuss your school’s STEM program
