The LT Media Lab, in partnership with Minneapolis Community Education
and Austin Public Schools
, is proud to announce being chosen as a SciGirls CONNECT partner for 2014-2016. SciGirls
is an animated and live-action television series that “has the bold goal of changing how millions of girls think about science, technology, engineering and math — or STEM.”
To be chosen for this opportunity allows educators from Minneapolis Community Education, Austin Public Schools, and the LT Media Lab to receive official training on SciGirls resources and curriculum. After the training, with the support of LT Media Lab staff, SciGirls clubs from Austin and Minneapolis will spend time investigating, creating, and solving STEM-based challenges. Next year, girls from both school districts will come to the University of Minnesota to meet each other, showcase their learning, and explore STEM careers.
