The purpose of this workshop is for teachers to engage students in Mathematics and Engineering in real world contexts. 

During the morning session participants will consider:

* what inspires girls
*  what is stereotype threat and how does it impact girls in the classroom

* why STEM? – the larger context of STEM and why mathematics and engineering

* what tools can we use to engage students, for example: language and collaboration

* how can we bring big ideas and real world contexts into the classroom through mathematics and engineering?


During the after-lunch session participants will be divided into primary school and high school groups to provide more focused hands on activities for each group.

Teachers will:

* create their own scenarios or lessons for students using contexts and big ideas (idea starters will be provided)

*  collaborate with others
* pitch their ideas and learn from each other.
