PAN-CAKE Program: May 14, 2022 Online and May 15, 2022 @ MSU (optional)

Science teachers are encouraged to apply for PAN-CAKE, a free professional development program with one-day online workshop and optional in-person session. Physics and Chemistry teachers may find this program particularly useful, while pre-service teachers who are looking to expand their content/pedagogy knowledge are especially welcome.
