STEM Club Share-a-thon

The STEM Education Center invites you to join the STEM Club - a PD series for current and aspiring STEM teachers. The STEM Club meets on Wednesday afternoons, from 4-6:30 pm at WPI. Each club meeting is led by a teacher presenting a STEM project s/he conducted in the classroom; participants get to try, exchange ideas, make connections, and leave with a project they can try in their classrooms.
