Looking to further engage the Minnesota STEM ecosystem SciMathMN will be hosting, with our partners in Project Lead the Way, a series of Twitter chats on key issues in the field today. All chats will be hosted at the hashtag #mnstemchat.
The series kicks off Thursday, February 18, 7:00 p.m., with a discussion of the place of STEM in Career and Technical education. February is national CTE Month. The pandemic has challenged hands-on STERM education across all academic areas but has also illustrated the importance of CTE opportunities for students and the need for those skills in our workforce.
The series picks up again Thursday, March 11, 7:00 p.m., with an important celebration of women in STEM. How can we inspire and empower our next generation of Minnesota STEM leaders? Bring your best ideas to #mnstemchats.
The series concludes April 2oth at 7:00 p.m. during Mathematics and Stats Month engaging on inclusive (K-12) Computer Science Education. The discussion will focus on 0cnnecting Math through CSED to our everyday lives, the essentials of computer science skills between the industry needs and the what students are learning in the classroom to prepare them for the high-tech demands, and other broader resources and connections.
