MƒA Thursday Think: Hands-on Puzzles
Mechanical puzzles provide fun challenges that can involve assembly or disassembly, geometric arrangement, and logical and spatial thinking. They often require the solver to think "outside the box" and find creative solutions to problems that at first seem impossible. They can be wonderful ways to introduce students to the joy of struggling with a problem over time and then feeling the "Aha" of satisfaction that leads them to seek further challenges. Working with puzzles also helps develop the skill of perseverence, which can be transferred to many other domains. In this event, sculptor and mathematician George Hart will talk about some of his favorite puzzles that can be used in a classroom. This will be followed by a hands-on period in which participants can play with a collection of puzzles he brings and build some small puzzles to take home. MƒA Thursday Thinks is a monthly speaker series that features thought-provoking talks from STEM experts – including scientists, mathematicians, authors, journalists and educators.

History Through Overlooked Narratives: Women
The first step in creating an inclusive classroom is ensuring that we teach inclusive topics. The Education Department at the New-York Historical Society strives to provide teachers with resources that give voice to individuals that are often overlooked in the historic narrative: those who are not male, white, and upper class. In this two part series, participants will explore the experience of immigrants and women in American history and consider how to effectively weave their perspectives into the Social Studies classroom. Part II will focus on the role women played in redefining what it means to be an American citizen. Participants will tour the exhibition Hotbed and learn about women activists of the early 20th century. Through primary source document analysis, we will unpack the challenge of studying women and the ways in which we can help students appreciate that to study women’s history is study a rich, diverse, a complicated group of important and influential individuals.

Highlands Ranch High School Military and Protective Services Career Exploration Workshop
Despite a steady increase in high school graduation rates over the last decade, fewer students are choosing to enroll in postsecondary education than in years past. The decline in enrollment could be attributed to the allure of the workforce in a growing economy, an inability to pay college tuition, or perhaps students are not fully prepared to envision a study concentration and ultimately choose a career path. Generation Schools Network (GSN) recognizes that college is not the right step for every student. For the 30.8% of high school graduates not enrolled in college, exposure to education career pathways such as protective services and military careers and could be the answer needed. Along with the true meaning of service and pride gained through patriotism, the military provides technical training that can be used for a variety of career fields. Tuition assistance is also available for military members to attend and graduate college; other benefits include health coverage for the member and their immediate family, along with many opportunities for salary increases and bonuses. As part of the College and Career Services at Generation Schools Network, MAPS Exploration Workshop is a one-day event in which students and their families explore all military and protective services careers. The purpose of the Workshop is to encourage students and parents to consider military & protective services as an achievable pathway to pursue after high school. This event will provide opportunities for them to directly communicate with members of each branch of the military through multiple interactive sessions. The Workshop will also lay out pathways for enlistment that outline how students can begin building their careers.
