#ToolkitTalk Recap: STEM Education

Nov 17, 2016

As a proud founding sponsor of National PTA’s STEM Plus Families initiative to engage families in and boost students’ access to STEM education and careers, we at Mathnasium are passionate about being the “M” in STEM! This week, we were thrilled when National PTA invited us to sit in on a Twitter #ToolkitTalk Q&A chat about STEM education.

Hosted by NBC’s @educationnation (creators of the Parent Toolkit), National PTA President Laura Bay (@PTALauraBay), and Carol Rinke (@CRinke_STEM), Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Science Education at Marist College, the STEM #ToolkitTalk chat was a true meeting of the minds, with many passionate STEM advocates chiming in on current trends and issues… @Mathnasium included!
