The NISE Network runs a series of free online workshops to increase the number of professional development opportunities available to our partners, and create more channels for partners to share their work and learn from each other directly.
Online Workshop: Empowering Girls in Science Through Growth Mindset and the New Girl Scout Space Science Badges
Tuesday, October 8, 2019; 2 - 3pm Eastern / 11am - 12pm Pacific
Join us for an online workshop focusing on Growth Mindset in girls and the new 2019 Space Science badges for Girl Scouts - Cadettes (grades 6-8), Seniors (grades 9-10) and Ambassadors (grades 11-12). Growth Mindset is a way to connect to our learning side, where we can make mistakes and use different learning strategies to grow and improve. Presenters will explore ways to engage and encourage girls in STEM, and how to be more inclusive more generally. We'll also explore the newly released Girl Scout Space Science Badges, the Girl Scouts’ STEM strategy, and ways science museums can successfully engage girls in Earth and space science.
