STEM Teacher Forum – November 14
STEM Networking Meeting – November 10

The Philadelphia Education Fund (Ed Fund) is delighted to continue its season of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) professional development. Through generous support from Boeing and the Dow Chemical Company, we offer two types of monthly PD activities:

STEM Teacher Forums. These afternoon/evening sessions feature a light dinner, individual STEM workshops, and professional networking. These free sessions are geared toward classroom teachers, although anyone can attend. The November workshops will be Computational Fluency (Grades K-5); Simply Fun Math and Science (Grades 2-5); and Building a Robot Free-Throw Shooter (Grades 5-12). The November Forum will run from 4:30 – 7 PM on Monday, November 14. Register HERE.

STEM Networking Meetings. These free sessions feature a light breakfast, informal networking, and topical panel discussions. The Networking meetings focus on informal STEM education, but everyone is welcome to participate. The November topic will be “Informal STEM and University Partnerships.” The panelists will be Mary Bailey, Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University; Sharlene Roberson, SVR Consulting Services; and Jamie Shuda, University of Pennsylvania. The November Networking Meeting will be from 9:30-11:30 AM on Thursday, November 10. Register HERE.


  • All PD events will take place in the United Way Building Lobby, at 1709 Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Reduced-rate parking will be available.
