Limited Capacity seats available

During this session, participants will be able to discuss when and how to incorporate strategies to promote inclusion, equity, and access when developing STEM programs and activities, then create a game plan for how to tackle these issues within their work. Using the story, I Know the Moon as a guide, we will analyze how different perspectives and contributions can promote greater understanding of STEM content for learners. Participants will share their own stories that help to create personal relevance for them and collaborate in small groups to brainstorm strategies to help overcome some of these issues in order to authentically promote inclusion, equity, and access in their STEM programs.
