Educator Empowerment Workshops 2019

What?

Children are constantly learning and educators, youth workers and parents want to help children be the best they can be! Be empowered to help the children in your life on their learning journeys. Join us to gain knowledge about STEM content, including Chemistry, Mathematics Processes, Literacy, and Computer Science. 

Each night a topic will be highlighted, guest experts will share, lessons will be offered and connections made to Indiana Science Standards for K-8 grade. PGPs and CYC points will be offered.  

This experience will count toward the new requirements for professional growth plan (PGP) experience points that changed under House Enrolled Act 1002. (Professional development provided by the state, a local business, or a community partner that outlines: (A) current and future economic needs of the community, state, nation, and globe; and (B) ways in which current and future economic needs described in (A) can be disseminated to students.)

Why?

The STEM Connection Professional Development is aimed at providing more empowerment opportunities for educators, parents, and youth workers through newsletters, training sessions, and content-rich workshops and events. The Educator Empowerment Workshops are meant to help formal and informal educators strengthen their understanding and comfort level with specific STEM content.
