*FINAL CALL* High school teachers, admins, principals, scientists and informal educators: Join us on Wednesday, January 15th for a “town hall” on the equity of science competitions. This “town hall” will be led by the Director of #RockEDU, Dr. Jeanne Garbarino, on the topic of science competitions for high school students. The complications of science competitions will be highlighted in regards to accessibility, expectations and perceptions about science. 100% free + open to the public!
January is #NationalMentoringMonth and we're sharing some tips for successful mentorship. At #RockEDU, we believe that good #mentoring requires training. This is why we offer workshops, resources and tools to #maximizementorship. This week, our tip is: #behumanfirst. One way to accomplish this is to focus on building people over projects. If a mentor creates an environment that is comfortable, forgiving + HUMAN, they increase the chances of receiving better outputs. We suggest framing the process of #science research in a human-centered design framework. This allows the process of science to be humanized by allowing your mentee to see where you get your inspiration from. ——————————————- We want to hear your stories of successful mentorship using a HUMAN perspective! Did sharing your pathway to inspiration help create a healthy lab environment? Tag us in your pics/posts! Stay tuned for our mentor handbook, launching soon! #magnifymentors#sciout#research#STEM#scicomm#teacher#teach#mentor... See MoreSee Less
@kylemarian @robertnulrich Sekhar, Raveena, and Jennyfer were part of our (@rockedu_ ) 2018 after school and summer research programs for HS students. They remain amazing mentees (and mentors), being sure to visit us often, keeping us in the loop. We are grateful they stick with us!!
Then head to our #SciOutCommunity Homebase, where you can view the outputs of the meeting itself https://t.co/ffyJQXWIhk, including our latest white paper on the continued professionalization of the #sciout field.
Phew! After a huge year of building and creating, we FINALLY have our Guide to Inclusive Science Outreach up, including the long-overdue outputs of the amazing #SciOut18 Unconference. https://t.co/b92fPy0Gz5
