We will share the strategies and activities that made
our first virtual STEM institute an engaging and educational experience for
diverse upper elementary and middle level youth.
Participants will: 1. identify best practices for engaging youth in informal STEM experiences, including an end-of-summer celebration; 2. learn how we delivered programming in STEM with multiple grade-level bands; and 3. gain a list of valuable resources we used to teach scientific concepts, including how we created and distributed kits.
