7th Annual (1st Virtual) STEAM Education Workshop

When

Monday February 15th, 2021

9:00 am — 12:00 pm

The ExCITe Center’s 7th Annual STEAM Education Workshop will be all-virtual on February 15 (Presidents’ Day). STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Design, and Math) has always been at the foundation of our Center, but it's more than a collection of disciplines. To us, it represents a convening of diverse voices, perspectives, and experiences that offers unique opportunities to share ideas, form new connections, and sow the seeds of transformation. We believe STEAM is a more inclusive approach to learning.

We are very pleased to announce that this year’s program features a keynote by renowned author and education researcher, Dr. Bettina Love (University of Georgia), co-founder of the Abolitionist Teaching Network. Dr. Love’s talk will address those in Pre-K-12 as well as higher education, discussing the struggles and the possibilities of committing ourselves to an abolitionist goal of educational freedom, as opposed to reform, and moving beyond what she calls the educational survival complex. Abolitionist Teaching is built on the creativity, imagination, boldness, ingenuity, and rebellious spirit and methods of abolitionists to demand and fight for an educational system where all students are thriving, not simply surviving.

The program also includes brief presentations and a panel discussion with Drexel faculty. Participation is free and ACT 48 credits are available for Pennsylvania teachers. Click here to register.
