We know introducing new technology into the classroom can be tough, especially when it comes to teaching coding and engineering. We also know professional development can be expensive for schools and teachers. 5 local STEM education companies in town are partnering to offer free monthly professional development:

4:30 - 4:35: Intro & Welcome
4:35 - 4:50: ThoughtSTEM - a computer science education after school & summer camp program
4:55 - 5:10: Piper - a buildable laptop using Raspberry Pi
5:15 - 5:30: Robo 3D - one of the top classroom 3D printers
5:35 - 5:50: Robolink - kits for making coding engaging, such as a programmable mini-drone
5:55 - 6:10: Sony Koov - a kid-friendly robotics kit for building all kinds of animals and mechanisms
6:10 - 6:40: Breakout and networking

We’ll rotate between our offices and other locations around town to show educators in San Diego how to use our products and services to make STEM education more engaging and exciting for students. We’ll cover different features of our products/features every month, and how they can help you teach content you already plan to cover. This will be our kickoff meeting, so it will help set the tone for what our educators in San Diego need. Please invite other teachers and administrators in town, and get hands-on experience with the amazing STEM offering we have.
