Feedback from fellow teachers:
"The experience was amazing! I felt very uneasy about teaching STEM but this training has boosted my confidence. I’m excited to take this back to my school and students."
"This training helped me build my knowledge-bank of science, math, and engineering topics that can be tied to a variety of topic areas."
NOTE: This is the final seminar for 2019. Additional sessions are being planned for 2020.
