Techbridge Girls Webinars: Creating Culturally-Responsive STEM Programs

Description

Participants learn to develop and facilitate STEM activities that are culturally responsive to youth in their programs. Building strong cultural identities help youth feel confident and proud of themselves and the communities they live in. Grounding STEM learning in youth’s cultural identities helps youth make connections to how STEM relates to their lives and demonstrates how STEM can help solve problems in youths’ communities. In this interactive webinar, you will reflect on what you know about your youths’ identities and learn culturally-responsive strategies that will make STEM meaningful for ALL youth in your programs. Primary Audience: Program providers and staff; Secondary Audience: State Network Leads.
