Increasing Diversity in STEM
Friday, February 20, 2015; 8:30-12:30
The STEM Education Center offers a free PD for educators interested in
engaging all students in STEM learning. Participants will take part in
an active workshop about the strategies and practices that enhance
student motivation and reduce inequalities.
This interactive workshop reflects to participants the bias,
stereotypes, and other societal factors that prevent students from
certain groups to pursue STEM majors and careers. The workshop then
presents research-based methods that make STEM accessible to all
groups of students (including girls, students with learning or
physical disabilities, students who live in poverty and students from
non-English speaking families) and thus reduce the STEM gap. The event
is free but requires registration.
