What is SciGirls?

SciGirls is an Emmy-award winning PBS KIDS television series and website dedicated to changing the way millions of girls think about STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). Local educators are invited to participate in a hands-on, minds-on Professional Development Training hosted by MSU Mankato. We welcome you to practice proven strategies for engaging girls in STEM while building a device to measure wind speed, lighting up a room with dough creatures, and much more!

Participants attending this workshop will:

• Learn the latest research for exciting and engaging girls (and boys) in STEM

• Experience hands-on STEM activities • Leave with curriculum that puts a creative twist on teaching STEM

• Learn how to modify activities to engage kids in STEM using the SciGirls Seven

• Discover additional online resources that enhance teaching and learning experiences for all kids.

Everyone benefits from a gender-equitable approach to STEM!

The training will be facilitated by Sofia Lindgren Galloway, Community Outreach Programs Coordinator at The Bakken Museum.
