International Day of Women and Girls in Science

Maddie Ann Kiwi Crate

Today, February 11, 2020 we celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Question to each and every one of you-->> How are YOU influencing/mentoring/being a role model to girls/young women to pursue their passion-driven dreams, interests & careers in #STEM?







Here are some creative strategies, resources and tools I shared with admins and k12 STEM educators at TCEA conference in Austin, TX last week that can support your efforts in making a positive STEM difference in a girl's life, and to afford her the much needed access and equity to learning experiences to build her life-long learning confidence in Science. Thanks to CS for All Teachers community of learners for getting a special spotlight and share out during this professional leanring event!  https://padlet.com/nharm/LeanIn #TogetherWeAreBetter
