Please join your Detroit education colleagues as we gather virtually on a Thursday afternoon to discuss and learn from each other about Family STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Maths) learning experiences.

We will kick-off this one-day, 90-minute virtual conference with a short Keynote by international family learning expert, Dr. Lynn D. Dierking (Institute for Learning Innovation). After a discussion with Lynn, we will then break into small group breakout sessions to engage in further discussion and shared learning, followed by a final large group summary and discussion about the next steps.

Each participant will be able to attend 2 of the following 3 sessions (we will be recording all sessions so you can catch the one you missed later):
