Virtual Poster Hall

Take a virtual stroll around the poster hall, and learn about DRK-12 and STEM+C projects.

Did you ever wonder what happens to all the poster boards? We donate them! After the PI Meeting, the poster boards were donated to a public school in Washington, D.C.

To include your poster in the virtual poster hall, email the file (ppt, png, or pdf) to cadre@edc.org.

Early Career Participant Perspectives

Postdocs attending the meeting offer their perspective on the theme and key sessions.

Relive the Meeting Through #DRK12Meeting Tweets and Images

Should we conceptualize learning trajectories as ladders or climbing walls? Walls allow flexibility for children to go on different paths to learn concepts. #DRK12meeting @lindseyeperry

Other dissemination strategies from Barbara Means: Include district representatives on your advisory board. Don't wait until the end of the project to think about dissemination. Have a theory of action for impact, and co-design to achieve it. #DRK12Meeting @KatietheCurious
