A three-part webinar series presented by Dr. Christine Cunningham & Shannon McManus

Part 1: Million Girls Moonshot Engineering Practice Support Equity
Date: Tuesday, September 22, 12:00 pm PST / 3:00 pm EST
Recording can be found here
Power Point can be found here

Interested in developing professional development focused on engineering mindset in youth? Wondering how to do this in equitable ways that encourage engagement and participation of girls and other underrepresented youth? This webinar, the first in a three-part series, focuses on three core engineering practices:

We’ll explore these briefly, highlighting how implementing the practice can help create inclusive learning experiences. In small groups, participants will examine resources that can support the practice and discuss how to use or modify them to foster engagement with engineering practices toward development of an engineering mindset. Educators and professional development providers will leave with a deeper understanding of the specific practices, concrete ideas and specific engineering activities and projects that can be completed over several virtual or in person afterschool sessions.

Part 2: Criteria and Constraints, Science and Math, Multiple Solutions for Programs
Date: Tuesday October 13, 12:00 pm PST / 3:00 pm EST
(Coming Soon)

Powerpoint can be found here.

This webinar, the second in a three-part series, focuses on engineering practices that help develop engineering mindset. As we introduce an engineering challenges designed for use in virtual or in-person afterschool programs we highlight four core engineering practices: 

We’ll explore the practices briefly and demonstrate how they can create inclusive learning experiences. In small groups, participants will examine how the engineering activity can be implemented to support the practices. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of the specific practices, an engineering activity they can implement, and concrete ideas and resources for infusing these into engineering programming.  

Educators and professional development providers will leave with a deeper understanding of the specific practices, concrete ideas and specific engineering activities and projects that can be completed over several virtual or in person afterschool sessions.

Part 3: Evaluate and Iterate, Failure, Teams and Identity
Date: Tuesday November 10, 12:00 pm PST / 3:00 pm EST
