McGraw Prize Webinar Series: Engineering Equity in K12 STEM Education

Online Feb 20 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm - Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Price: Free

All students in preK-12 classrooms should be engaged in engineering and science learning. The diversity of student ideas and experiences in today’s classrooms represents an opportunity to foster a generation of creative problem solvers that will shape their world. Curricular resources are powerful learning tools that can invite or exclude students and affect their participation, learning, and identities. Thus, the design of such materials should be carefully considered. 

In this webinar, 2017 McGraw Prize Winner Christine Cunningham explores a set of research-based inclusive curricular design principles for the creation of engineering curricula. Using examples and research from preschool, elementary, and middle school, we will explore how well-designed curricula can develop children’s facility with, knowledge of, and interest in engineering and science. This webinar is one in a series presented by Catalyst @ Penn GSE featuring winners of the Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Prize for Education. Together, Catalyst and the McGraw Prize are advancing innovation in education through a growing array of programming.
