    World Radio Day and STEM Mentorship


      This month’s radio broadcast is a two part focus. The first is in the importance of celebrating and recognizing World Radio Day and how to get youth excited about live broadcast journalism and creating and producing their own school radio shows,  and the second portion is  how can we has educators can continue to provide voice and choice with girls and young women in STEM  science, technology, engineering, and mathematics learning opportunities so they can follow and excel in their STEM career driven passions.

          Thank you for these resources!  I love the article Maker-Faire in that iPad! and will forward to my Principal and Tech person.  My campus will offer coding and robotics next year.  You have given me resources to include mentors and volunteers in the mix as we develop and plan our program.
