Our PLD Sessions
One Hour Workshop
Full Day Workshop
We bring STEM to life by connecting the classroom to real-life industry. During a full-day session, teachers will learn fun and practical tools to extend their existing Science and Technology curriculums and to encourage students to pursue STEM careers.
NEW! Multi-session PLD series
Our PLD series builds strong, authentic connections and ensures STEM engagement is sustained over time in your school. Between sessions, teachers are encouraged to explore and implement STEM activities and share their experiences in subsequent workshops.
Curriculum-Aligned Workshops for Teachers
Nanogirl’s PLD workshops empower teachers to bring STEM to the classroom!
We believe positive role models make all the difference, especially for encouraging students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) so all our school shows and PLD workshops are delivered by a fully qualified scientist or engineer.
Through practical and interactive sessions, you’ll learn how to guide children through simple and fun science experiments that bring STEM to life in the classroom. Our workshops use only cheap and easy-to-find ingredients to help you keep your consumable costs low—and help your students to realise that science is everywhere!
Topics include: Sustainability and Recycling, The Living World, Digital Technologies, Engineering, Science through Art and Creativity, Chemistry, Materials and Structures, Physical World, Sound and Waves, Nature of science and concepts in Mātauranga Māori.
All workshops are carried out in your school and include free printable curriculum packs. We offer flexible timing to help fit teachers’ busy schedules.
