Seminars & Events
We’re thrilled to share MƒA Thursday Thinks, a monthly speaker series held (typically) on the first Thursday of each month. Thursday Thinks feature thought-provoking talks from STEM experts – including scientists, mathematicians, authors, journalists and educators – that are open to MƒA teachers, their colleagues, and their guests.
October 10 — When Content Meets Context: Toward a Revolution in STEM Education
In this talk, Professor Chris Emdin explores the historical and contemporary landscape of urban education and provides a new lens for viewing how and why teachers must focus on deep excavations of culture in order to gain new approaches to improving STEM pedagogy. In particular, he merges cutting-edge research with real-life examples to provide ways that educators may re-imagine their roles in STEM teaching and learning and meet the needs of their most marginalized students.
