How to bring STEM to all your teachers

Very often we organize live online sessions within the worlds of STEM, robotics, education, and Professional Development. In most of our STEM webinars, we focus on how can teachers bring robotics, cyber robotics and STEM to all of their students. This time, we decided to do it a bit differently.

On our latest STEM webinar, we decided to speak to decision makers, directors, administrators and superintendents to learn how to bring cyber robotics and STEM content, this time, to all teachers. Of course, the concept of Professional Development appeared right away.

The panelists of our latest Professional Development STEM webinar

We were very lucky to have the presence of 3 outstanding professionals, that together with our very own Adi Shmorak, guided this interesting conversation and exchanged information with an audience full of questions.

During the past years, we’ve been building a community of people who really care about education, STEM, and the actual skills our students are receiving on a daily basis. The extraordinary professionals who joined our panel, besides being part of those communities, are also education thought leaders, and are creating and leading outstanding initiatives to make a real change in the world.

The session: Is STEM Professional Development for all teachers?

During this interesting live and online STEM panel, we discussed several topics. PD funding, choosing the right curricula, and if STEM PD is only for STEM teachers or for all teachers.

Both the answers from the panelists, and the questions from the audience allowed us to understand STEM and professional development from a renewed, unique, and hopeful place.

We invite you to watch the session in the link below and to learn as much as we did from these 3 extraordinary experts, and from the amazing questions of our STEM professionals, superintendents, and CS directors, among others…
