Join webinar on Strategies for Increasing Diversity in STEM Learning Environments

Please join the STELAR Center for a webinar about working with diverse participants in STEM programming on Thursday, November 20, at 3pm Eastern time

Description:

A challenge to successfully delivering STEM education programming is the continued participation of diverse program participants, who may face social or external pressures or barriers in their immediate environment that may limit their attendance. During this webinar, we will hear from ITEST projects that are developing innovative program models to successfully work with youth from underrepresented communities in authentic STEM learning experiences. 

Presenters:

  • Sally Stevens with the iSTEM Project will share strategies for engaging rurally located Native American and Hispanic youth in STEM.
  • Michael Evans with Studio STEM will share how their project is using fundamental concepts in energy conservation and sustainability to engage rural Appalachian middle grade students. 
  • Anika Ward and Joseph Adamji with Bits-2-Bites will share findings and lessons learned for recruiting and engaging youth from diverse backgrounds from their project on using computational thinking to address nutrition and food justice issues.
