Collab Lab: Re/connect

What's a Collab Lab?

How often do you have an opportunity to connect with colleagues in other districts to share innovative practices in education?

Learn Deep brings educators from across Milwaukee together to share what we’re working on to benefit our students. Each gathering includes individuals from outside organizations who have looked at parallel practices from another perspective. Together, we explore the goals educators hope to reach, hurdles which stand in the way, and opportunities to move forward. Collab Labs are a chance to learn what strategies others have used to succeed, and to solicit help and feedback from others who have worked towards similar goals.

May wraps up the 3rd season of our Collab Lab Series. Since we started, we’ve had more than 400 inspired educators and community partners from non-profits, higher-ed, and industry join us to explore ways we can collaborate to engage K-12 students across greater Milwaukee in meaningful, authentic work.

The May Collab Lab will move to City Lights Brewing with an earlier start time. This is your chance to drop in, re/connect with folks from different sessions, and talk through ideas over a beer.

UW-Waukesha is excited to offer the annual GEMS program which will bring middle school girls and their parents, teachers, community leaders, and successful professional women together in an effort to boost knowledge and interest in various areas of math, science, and engineering.

Their unique program will allow girls ages 11 to 14 to choose various hands-on workshops taught by successful professionals in those fields to establish connections and friendships with like-minded girls of the same age group.

Girls MUST be between the ages of 11-14. This program is primarily funded by sponsors and all workshops are held by professional specialists that are volunteering their services for their day to specifically engage this age range for the program. Because of this, unfortunately, if your daughter is "almost" 11 years, she will need to wait to join our GEMS until next year.

We accomplish this mission by putting our collective expertise and passion on display for the attendees to interact with us at their will. A combination of open area of STEM stations and concentrated workshops will enable the attendees to expand and enlighten their technical interests.

Hak4Kidz, CypherCon and the Midwest Gaming Classic are partnering again! Once again your kids will have the best of both worlds, gaming and hacking! Not necessarily both together.

A kids ticket is $44.00. A parent ticket is $28.50. This event will take place at the Hilton Milwaukee located at 509 W Wisconsin Ave, Milwaukee, WI.

Rube Goldberg Machine Contest for Middle School Students

Applying a variety of STEM skills, teams of middle school students create complicated machines to perform a predetermined simple task. These extraordinary machines typically reflect very diverse design solutions. Problem solving, advanced manufacturing concepts, and the engineering design process (not to mention math and science) are all part of the educational experience. This event, organized by STEM Forward, will be held at Waukesha Community Technical College.

Is your school interested in participating? Contact Heather Combs, Program Manager, at 414.810.7836 or hcombs@stemforward.org for more information.
