Tapestry Workshop 2013 aims to boost diversity in STEM fields

Tapestry workshops are held yearly at top universities, and aim to help STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) teachers find the best ways to recruit and retain girls in STEM classes at the middle and high school levels.

Twenty-five teachers from around the nation will participate in this event taking place on July 16-18, 2013, at FIU’s College of Business, Room CBC 232. The goals of the workshop are to give teachers strategies, research-based practices, and field-tested ideas for teaching STEM in a way that reaches all students. This program is funded, in part, by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
