January Expert Panel: Embracing Neurodiversity in STEM

January 24th, 2023, 2:30 pm - January 24th, 2023, 3:30 pm CST
Location: ET
Host: STEM for ALL Multiplex

This panel focuses on the connections between neurodiversity and STEM problem solving. Some of the same aspects of neurodiversity that are often characterized as deficits in learning are accompanied by talents that can be harnessed for STEM problem solving. Neurodivergent learners often bring unique strengths to STEM problem solving and should be encouraged and supported in their innovative ways of thinking. The projects discussed on this panel focus on novel pedagogical approaches to highlight neurodivergent thinkers’ creativity, persistence, attention to detail, systematic thinking while also supporting their executive function.
