STEM Equity Workshop

June 19, 2017


*STEM Equity Workshop, June 19, Eden Prairie

NAPE’s Explore STEM Careers Toolkit provides a framework with lesson plans and activities to help staff, faculty, and administrators to educate and inspire every student to consider a career in STEM. This professional development provides research-based messaging to effectively reach and encourage a diverse group of students to consider a future career in STEM.

The National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity (NAPE) will present an overview of STEM careers, introduce messages that use positive language for talking with students, and connect the messaging with tools, activities, and resources. The professional development will help educators, counselors and administrators learn how to talk about the wide range of career options in STEM and enable students to explore STEM career opportunities. It will also equip educators with new ways to talk to students about engineering and other STEM-related careers to build their self-efficacy and promote a multitude of career options. The free workshop is 1 – 4 pm at Hennepin Technical College in Eden Prairie. Register at this site.
