This professional development workshop is designed to acquaint teachers with real-life applications of STEM skills in today’s manufacturing environment.

Teachers will learn about current demands in the manufacturing industry – and consider how to prepare students with the skills to meet these demands - by networking with other STEM educators from across the state, CEOs of local companies, and members of the Connecticut Department of Education.
