Professional Development for Teachers

DIY Girls offers workshops for elementary and middle school teachers. The material presented builds off the projects that we have used in our programs for girls.

Our professional development workshops include:

  • Comprehensive overview of hands-on projects and practical hands-on training in classroom implementation

  • Fabrication with recycled materials, electronic circuits, wearable technology, simple robotics, conductive paint, and computer programming

  • Training in content areas, hands-on activities, and curriculum resources

  • Introduction to classroom management skills for facilitating projects

  • Teachers receive a kit of project supplies to implement STEAM hands-on activities in their classroom.

If you're interested in bringing our workshop to your school, please contact Luz Rivas at luz@diygirls.org
