April 12 from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., 8:30 a.m. check-in, at the Science Museum of Minnesota. The cost for this event is $25 per person. Click here to register.

Join us to engage in meaningful interactive dialogue that will explore how we are preparing our students in science and engineering for the grand challenges of today and the future. A recently released report from the National Research Council presents a new framework for K-12 science education that identifies the key scientific and engineering practices all students should learn. Minnesota is a lead state in developing the new standards which will be released for public comment.

Featuring:
• Keynote: Heidi Schweingruber, Ph.D., Deputy
Director of the Board on Science Education at the
National Research Council
• Pecha Kucha: Short presentations on how science
and engineering is being successfully integrated.
• Interactive Design Challenge: How might we
prepare our students to solve today's grand
challenges? You decide.

Don't wait until the event to get the conversation going. Join the virtual gathering on InCommons. Create a profile or log in through Facebook.
