Family engagement in STEM: Closing the opportunity gap, empowering families, and responding to COVID-19
How do we help close rather than increase the opportunity gap in STEM with family engagement? How do we make sure that every parent feels confident and has the resources to support their child in STEM? How do we reimagine family engagement as more than a one-time, end-of-program event? How do we respond to the challenges of COVID-19 and support children and their families in engaging in STEM and social-emotional learning at home and in their community? This interactive webinar will share promising practices, lessons learned, and resources for supporting families in STEM from out-of-school-time programs in various settings across the country. We are looking to make this a helpful session and discuss bright spots from our work and address the challenges and questions you are working on. This webinar will also provide a chance for you to share your learnings and new strategies for family engagement tried over the summer and planned for the coming school year.
