Technology Foundations: STEM Readiness Resources at No Cost (EverFi)
March 31, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am
“Why do I need to know this?”
“When will I ever use this in real life?”
Through EverFi’s interactive, web-based programs focused on key critical skill areas aligned to Pennsylvania standards, students will have the opportunity to answer these questions as they apply abstract concepts into real world situations.
Through our partnership with the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation and the MassMutual Foundation, these resources are available at no cost to your school.
In this session you will learn how to educate your students on the nuts and bolts of technology, bring STEM concepts to life using the fast- paced game of hockey, and apply math and social studies concepts in a virtual community. We will take a deep dive into the programs and determine the best fit for your curriculum. Please bring your laptop or device. Opportunity to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card!
