How to be a STEM Mentor Workshop

Presented by Moms as Mentors®
Hosted by STEAMworks@TERC

When: October 11, 2017, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Where: STEAMworks@ TERC

This interactive workshop explores why it’s more important than ever for children, particularly girls, to be encouraged in the STEM fields and how parents and caregivers can be “STEM Mentors” for their children, regardless of their own comfort or experience with STEM. The session includes a discussion of practical ways to be a STEM mentor on a daily basis. Participants leave with take-home resources to help encourage their children’s STEM interest and confidence.

This workshop is for parents and caregivers only. Childcare will not be provided.
