CoderZ Webinar Alert: Inclusiveness in STEAM Education – Learn how to engage your students in STEAM disciplines (in school and at home)
WHAT: No cost, open session for middle and high school educators featuring educators Michaela Durand and Sarah Trotta from Madison Middle School
WHEN: Tuesday, March 24 at 2:00 – 3:00 PM EST
DERRY, N.H. – March 20, 2020 – Introducing complex STEM subjects and disciplines to students can be a challenge, but ensuring inclusivity in classes that teach STEM skills and concepts is the pathway to student success. On Tuesday, March 24, will host an interactive webinar on how inclusiveness in STEAM education can allow educators engage students in coding and robotics while also helping to close the gender gap in STEM education. The presenters of the webinar will be Michaela Durand and Sarah Trotta, two STEM educators from Madison Middle School.
During this webinar, Durand and Trotta will share how they turned a simple coding and robotics class into an inclusive learning environment for all students. Using practical examples from their experience teaching students STEAM concepts, Durand and Trotta will share how to turn a typical STEM classroom into an inclusive one, how to engage all students in coding and robotics, and steps that can be taken to help close the gender gap in STEM education. These educators will also discuss how participation in robotics competitions can further help to promote inclusivity in STEM subjects and disciplines. Attendees will be able to hear first-hand how the CoderZ platform can assist in reaching their goals for inclusivity in a robotics, coding, or STEM classroom and ask questions to make inclusiveness a reality in their own classrooms.
“Promoting inclusiveness in the STEM classroom is one of the greater goals of CoderZ, which aims to bring coding and robotics to any student regardless of their previous experience with STEM concepts,” said Ido Yerushalmi, founder of the CRCC and CEO of CoderZ. “This webinar will provide practical steps that any educator can take to help improve inclusivity in their classrooms through an easy-to-use virtual robotics platform and comprehensive coding competitions that are accessible to every student who wants to dive deeper into their coding, robotics, and STEM knowledge.”
