The MAS would like to encourage high school STEM teachers to attend the “Telling Your Story” STEM outreach workshop on Tuesday, April 9 from 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM at MIT. The “Telling Your Story” program is designed to show students how STEM education translates into real-world careers. Scientists, engineers, and other STEM professionals want to work with you to design an engaging classroom visit, during which they will discuss their path to pursuing a STEM career and their life today. Providing professional scientific role models is an effective way to inspire your students to work towards their own STEM careers!
To learn more and register, go to: https://sites.google.com/site/tellyourstoryworkshopmit/ (applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. There is room for 25 High School teachers and 25 STEM researchers and engineers.)
The program is facilitated by Jessica Garrett, MIT Edgerton Center’s Education Outreach Coordinator and a former public school teacher, and Carolyn Zeiner, a Harvard graduate student in Environmental Microbiology. Telling Your Story is sponsored by the HHMI Drennan Ed Lab at MIT, HHMI Education Group (Graham Walker) at MIT, the MIT Edgerton Center , Cambridge Science Festival and the Harvard ESE Grad Student Association.) It was originally developed by TERC for the Center for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence – New England
