As part of the Jumpstarting STEM Pilot, this webinar is to help support frontline staff in their implementation of the TechXcite curriculum in development at the Pratt School of Engineering of Duke University. The webinar features two guest speakers: Dr. Paul Klenk, the Director of the TechXcite curriculum, and Jeff Davis of the California AfterSchool Network. Dr. Klenk gives an overview of the curriculum, necessary materials, online tools, and additional engineering curriculum, which is free and uses accessible materials for programs on a "shoe-string" budget.  In addition, he surfaces 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 school of engineering, to further professional development opportunities for staff, and to utilize hands-on engineering and science curriculum.
