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
