    As one of the most pressing societal challenges we face in the United States and globally, COVID-19 has further exposed injustices disproportionately impacting minoritized groups. Other challenges, including climate change and sustainability, likewise disproportionately impact minoritized groups. In K-12 classrooms, unprecedented societal challenges disproportionately impacting minoritized groups present an unprecedented opportunity to reframe the role of phenomena and problems for promoting justice in STEM education and society broadly. Participants will examine the role of phenomena and problems in traditional and contemporary approaches in science and engineering education and how STEM education can address pressing societal challenges in the coming years. Building on and extending contemporary approaches based on A Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards, participants will consider future approaches in STEM education broadly that address pressing societal challenges while centering justice.

    Presenter: Okhee Lee, Professor of Childhood Education, New York Universitty.

    1 PDU will be provided for attending, contingent upon completing an exit survey.
