Pursuing an engineering career is a lot of work! I have the privilege of teaching undergraduate engineering students. They take full course loads of fundamental math and science classes while leading student clubs, pursuing internships and serving in the community. I sometimes wonder if they have any down time!
Our world is ever evolving as new technologies and processes are developed to resolve issues and simplify tasks. These new developments and inventions are often credited to engineers, but what is an engineer?
This is the last in our series on the who, what, why, and how of professional development for out-of-school programs. This week we examine the how of building staff skills through coaching and SMART Goals.
This week's blog on the who, what, why, and how of professional development will help you decide who can provide the professional development for your staff. The Click2Science professional development model is designed to build local capacity for STEM. It is flexible to meet your program requirements and integrates the resources you have available.
This month, we are focusing on planning for professional development with a series of blogs on the who, what, why, and how of professional development for out-of-school time (OST) programs. This week we examine what makes professional development effective in developing the whole person and accomplishing program goals.
As we launch 2018 exploring the who, what why, and how of professional development for out-of-school time (OST) programs, this week we examine "How" you can use resources from Click2SciencePD to develop a professional development plan for yourself and your program.
We are kicking off the new year by thinking about planning for professional development in 2018. This month we'll be discussing the who, what, why, and how of professional development. We'll start this week by examining "Why" out-of-school programs should invest in staff development.

I memorized the scientific method, not just once but five times. “Form a question/write a hypothesis/design an experiment/gather data/analyze results/repeat.”
