If you missed today's chat, don't worry! The community is still using #BackToSTEM on Twitter to share ideas, comments and resources. Go ahead and post your answers to our chat questions:
- Q1- We're about to start a new school year. What's your favorite way to get kids excited about science and STEM learning?
- Q2- Do you plan to incorporate science into other after school activities? Which ones and how?
- Q3- Why is it important talk to kids about careers in science? How do you start that conversation?
- Q4- Do you have plans to incorporate a real scientist this year into your activities? How?
- Q5- What resources would help you feel better prepared to incorporate STEM into your program?
- Q6- Thinking about all of the kids in your after school program, what percentage participates in STEM?
- Q7- What lessons learned from the summer/last year will you use to make sure ALL kids can participate in STEM this year?
- Q8- What's your favorite STEM moment from this summer that you can take into the new year?
Not on Twitter? Post your #BackToSTEM thoughts on our Facebook page. This week we're also having a deeper conversation about Project Based Learning on our LinkedIn group page.
We're always looking for new ways to connect with our community. Have a great idea for the next Twitter chat? A photo of your favorite STEM moment this summer? Or maybe you'd like to contribute to this blog as a guest blogger? Let us know!
Thanks again for a great conversation today!
