CS & STEM Networking Meeting

Mon. March 4, 2024 | 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm CST

You’ve got the lessons. You’ve got the pathways. Now, it’s time to consider the (maker)space you’ll need to bring so many of your hands-on STEM learning goals to life.

If you are:

– Ready to build your school’s first makerspace
– Eager to upgrade or remodel an existing makerspace
– Unsure where to start planning or designing your makerspace
– Unable to secure a space for your STEM lab, but still want to bring maker experiences into the classroom

…then this month’s meeting is for you! No matter where you are in your makerspace journey, join us for a rich discussion on what your school or district needs to consider when jumping into the world of makerspaces. In particular, we’ll touch on what you need to successfully plan, design, and stock your makerspace or STEM lab, as well several successful strategies current STEM educators have found to initially and continuously fund their space.

Calling all K-12 computer science and STEM educators! Join your peers from across the state each month for an informative, engagement-rich networking meeting centered on topics that matter most to you.

Hosted by CS & STEM Program Director Sarah Phelps, each month’s networking meeting is a place where participants can:

– Learn about new resources
– Ask questions
– Share experiences
– Expand their CS and STEM professional network

Teachers, administrators, and curriculum stakeholders are invited to attend, as well CS & STEM educators of all experience levels and at all grade levels. Whether you’re just starting out or interested in taking your district’s CS & STEM program to the next level, this networking group will help you achieve your goals!
