- Get Connected
As part of the Jumpstarting STEM Pilot, this webinar is to help support frontline staff in their implementation of 4-H's Junk Drawer Robotics curriculum. The webinar features two guest speakers: Richard Mahacek and Steven Worker of 4-H. They give an overview of the curriculum, necessary materials, online tools, and additional engineering curriculum, which is free and accessible for programs on a "shoe-string" budget. In addition, they surface common challenges implementers face when guiding the modules while also providing strategies to overcome those challenges. This webinar will be useful for all after-school programs that are looking to connect with an acclaimed engineering curriculum, to further professional development opportunities for staff, and to utilize hands-on engineering and science curriculum.
