#STEMchat January 2013: Making STEM New Year’s Resolutions

Email   PrintPrint

Hi all,

My first Engagement of 2013 is upon me already.  I am happy and honored to be a panelist for the first installment of the 2013 #STEMchat series. #STEMchat is a monthly online discussion on Twitter to bring parents, educators and STEM professionals together to share resources and ideas to raise STEM-loving kids (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math).  It is hosted by The Maker Mom, with Kim Moldolfsky at the helm.

Panelists also include Dr. Carol Tang (@CarolTang1) of the Coalition for Science After School, Dr. Deborah Gilboa (@AskDocG) host of the PBS program “iQ SmartParent”, Monica Metlzer (@IllinoisScience) is President of the Illinois Science Council, and Fred Goodall (@MochaDad) of Plus, our hostess, Kim Moldofsky (@KimMoldofsky) of The Maker Mom will be moderating.  Please come and join us in this discussion.  Since we represent a range of interesting in public engagement (youth, adult, out-of-school time, formal classroom, scientists, parents, etc), I think this will be an exciting conversation. Come one come all. This is definitely a topic for everyone.

And to get the ball rolling, What are STEM New Year’s resolutions for 2013? Do you plan to participate in a Maker Event or Hack Day? Will you help your children with a Science Fair project? Perhaps you will attend a Tech and Robotics Competition or have your company sponsor a team?

Drop me a line and tell me what exciting plans you have in store for yourself, family, friends, and/or students.
