Join us for the
STEM Active Learning Professional Development Workshop Series

Brought to you by the Governor's STEM Advisory Council's Active Learning Working Group

Dear STEM Active Learning Community Partner:

You are invited to join us for a STEM Active Learning Professional Development Workshop!

During these active, hands-on workshops, the STEM Active Learning Community Partners Group will feature a series of trainings in which you will have a chance to transform a STEM lesson with the Harvard-based "Dimensions of Success" Program Planning Tool. Each participant is required to submit a STEM lesson plan before the workshop. Register for a workshop here.

At the end of the workshop, you'll leave with:
  • a high-quality STEM activity to use at your own program or organization
  • an understanding of the DoS Planning Guide that measures STEM quality in active learning (out-of-school time) settings
  • a free, online resource that aligns with DoS to serve as additional professional development
  • increased confidence in facilitating STEM activities!

Participants will receive a $50.00 stipend for attending the workshop and submitting a revised STEM lesson plan after the workshop.

Space is limited, register today!
