We'll post videos about how to use the state's Course of Study to see how your lesson can align to the state standards. But if you want to look at it in advance, here is the link to the COS for science.
What do I have to include? We'll provide training during the first event and with videos, but just to get a sense of what a K-12 lesson plan involves, we have created a lesson plan template to get you started.

Students who come from groups that are underrepresented STEM are more likely to feel like STEM is not “for” them. Groups of students who are less likely to feel engaged by STEM (generally) include girls, first-generation college students, rural students, and racially minoritized groups. Part of this detachment is that these groups of students are more likely to want to serve their community with their careers (altruistic career goals) and aren't as motivated by salary or prestige when choosing a career.
