Breaking barriers to STEM careers for kids with disabilities

June 27, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s (USPTO) Office of Education on June 27, 6-7:30 p.m. ET, as we welcome Joann Blumenfeld, a former special education teacher and a passionate advocate for making science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education accessible to all. She will share how she is creating more inclusive access to STEM careers for children of all abilities.

The USPTO hosts monthly professional development webinars for K-12 educators interested in integrating intellectual property (IP), innovation, and invention activities into their STEM/STEAM curriculum. Whether you’re a school administrator, teacher, student, parent, or caregiver, you are welcome to join us every month to hear from educators and learn about different types of IP, including patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets. These sessions can help inspire a classroom of problem solvers and shape career choices. Sessions are held by webinar on the last Tuesday of each month from 6-7:30 p.m. ET.
