Thank you for your interest in the SciGirls Professional Development Training.

SciGirls is a PBS Kids television series out to change how tweens think about science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM! In each episode, join bright, curious real girls in putting STEM to work. Then check out the website to play games, watch episodes, share projects, and connect with other SciGirls in a totally safe social networking environment!

SciGirls Trainings integrate inquiry-based STEM instruction with a commitment to gender equity. Educators attending SciGirls Trainings will learn the latest research for exciting and engaging girls (and boys) in STEM; experience hands-on STEM activities; and gain access to free materials for hands-on, video-enhanced activities that put a creative twist on teaching STEM.

There is no fee to attend this training.

Summer bowling

June 3rd, 2011

Great deal for a summer of bowling. You do need to still pay shoe rental, any adult games are not free, and you just get one game per day. However, if you have a Brunswick bowl nearby and your kids enjoy bowling, and you plan to bowl a couple times this summer, it is definitely worth the couple minutes to sign them up.
