Girls, STEM + Storytelling: A Love Story
Recent studies confirm girls’ ongoing aversion to all things STEM. In this talk, I show how story can inspire girls to explore, learn and experiment with STEM learning in ways they wouldn’t outside of a story framework and how teaching STEM through storytelling offers creative opportunities to encourage them to pursue their STEM-related passions. I'll introduce five innovative ways educators are teaching STEM through story, including an educator teaching his students math by first reading a short story about a utopian society. I’ll provide book ideas for teachers and parents interested in introducing girls to STEM through story, and integrating arts with STEM for innovative STEAM learning.
