Launching a New Webinar Series to Support Teachers and Distance Learning

August 04, 2020

We know school is going to look very different this year! So we are launching a new webinar series focused on helping teachers with distance learning and teaching STEM from a distance.

As we head back to school this fall in all its new incarnations, we know that hands-on learning and STEM education face new challenges. It’s time to start brainstorming innovative ways to keep our students engaged, creating, making, and coding. In this new webinar series, we’ll be reaching out to educators all over the world to see how they are tackling these challenges in the era of COVID-19.


Join our first dynamic panel of ladies in STEM as we discuss teaching hands-on learning from a distance. From literacy maker kits and brown bag STEAM projects, to teaching the Engineering and Design process with a blended learning style.
