Community leaders from the region’s non-profit and civic organizations will gather at BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee to learn how they can better support student achievement through programs taking place outside of the classroom.
The Southeast Tennessee STEM Innovation Hub and Hamilton County Department of Education, in collaboration with BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, will lead this day-long training.
In an effort to extend academic learning outside of school, the facilitators will focus on how these informal educators can give children in afterschool programs, camps and other activities more experiences aligning with STEM best practices and the new Common Core State Standards.
Participants can register through Friday at www.informaleducatorworkshop.eventbrite.com.
The training will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 23, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at BlueCross BlueShield in the First Floor Community Room, 1 Cameron Hill Cir.
