Two Special Livestream Events in February

A special thank-you to Lisa Sequiera, Tahanto Science Department Chair and Science Coach, for sharing this link with us in recognition of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science on February 11, 2022. This special day, established by the United Nations, recognizes the essential role of women and girls in science and technology. To celebrate, the organization, Conservation in the Classroom is hosting two live stream webinars in February featuring women currently changing the world through science! These live streams can be used by teachers and by families. Additional resources are also provided. Please be sure to register and check out the offerings on behalf of your students and your children! You can find the link here.
