Our last meeting was generously sponsored by our friends at MDE. This time, MMSLN has volunteered to pick up the tab (be sure to thank Mary Starr)! That’s right, a $500 value – absolutely FREE! What a wonderful show of support for this amazing community. To take advantage of this special offer, you must act now by registering using this link.

Not only will this meeting feature time with friends to share and support one another, but we will also throw in presentations and conversations around…

  • Phenomenon fatigue from Christie Morrison Thomas, CREATE for STEM @ MSU

  • New twists and turns in our community elementary advocacy efforts
  • Updates from our state and national friends.

…And that’s all before lunch.

After lunch we will join in an EdCamp to discuss what is on your mind.

What is s MI Sci PLN you ask?

MI Sci PLN is a learning community for PK-20 science education professionals whose responsibilities may include leading implementation efforts, delivering teacher professional learning programs, curriculum and assessment design, and pre-service teacher preparation for the purpose of enhancing communication, encouraging cooperation, and inspiring collaboration. Community members meet to share their work, learn about exciting efforts around the state, and hear important updates (ex., MI Sci PLN Agenda & MI Sci PLN Updates, November 2, 2022). It is led by representatives of groups committed to science education from across the state, including, MDE, MiSTEM, MMSLN, MSELA, MSTA, ISD/RESAs, universities, and independent consultants, each with connections to national science education leadership to ensure the entire community shares a vision for science education, is well informed, connected, and is prepared to lead efforts in their area of influence.

In essence, it’s an amazing community of supportive and very cool people that will help you do your job better. Trust me!

See you soon!
