Do you have girls in your program who are interested in Science,
Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) and you are not sure how to
support them to pursue their interests? Research shows that girls begin to lose
both their interest and confidence in science and STEAM by middle school.
In this training,
participants will be introduced to successful women in STEAM careers and learn
how to create a safe, fun, STEAM learning experience for ALL YOUTH. Participants will leave this training with
ready-to-go activities and videos that will introduce youth to professional
women in STEAM and support girls (and all youth) to build confidence and skills
in STEAM areas.
Upon successful completion of this training, the
participant will earn 2 clock hours (.2CEUs) of training.
