Meeting sessions are brief, 15-30 minutes, professional development experiences intended to introduce or reinforce STEM skills for staff. They can be part of a regularly scheduled staff meting or conducted virtually. Meeting sessions focus on a single skill and are designed to be part of ongoing professional development experiences and combined with training and coaching sessions to create a blended learning experience that makes a meaningful impact on staff.
