 Increasing Diversity in STEM
 
 Friday, February 20, 2015; 8:30-12:30
 
 Location: WPI
 
 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.
