Professional Learning Workshop on STEM Careers
On Friday, May 6, teachers will gather in Selkirk, Manitoba to participate in a new professional learning workshop on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers.
Developed and facilitated by Let’s Talk Science, this hands-on workshop will help teachers develop innovative ways to showcase STEM careers in their classrooms.
