Educators in Grades 4-10

The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative at
Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.

STEM Educators will explore the issue of Culturally Relevant Teaching (CRT) as it relates to STEM education.  The presenters from the NASA STEM Educator Professional Development Collaborative (EPDC) will share a vast array of NASA resources and opportunities that are targeted at serving all students and teachers, with a special emphasis on those who have traditionally been underserved in STEM initiatives.  Participants will engage in problem-based challenges that educators can integrate into their K-12 curriculum.  Teacher guides and lessons plans will be provided for K-12 teachers, pre-service teachers and educators of pre-service students to provide them with the foundation they will need to be effective STEM educators.
