Our Teacher Workshops are of a hands-on nature and encourage active participation. Clock hours are available upon request. Workshops are designed for up to 25 teachers. An additional material fee of $150 will be added for large groups.
STEAM and Cognitive Development
This workshop is based on Piaget’s research. Learn how STEAM impacts the development of whole-brain learning of young learners. Experience activities to bring STEAM in to the natural flow of your classroom environment and everyday learning.
STEAM through Children’s Books
Teachers will experience four (4) activity stations. Each activity is designed to accompany a children’s story. For example, Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? by Bill Martin, Jr. may be one activity. However, we put a science spin on the story and focus on how our ear hears and we explore states of matter and how vibrations travel through them! Great for Preschool – 1st grade!
STEAM and Project Based Learning
Tinkering through STEAM
Discover the many ways cognitive skills are developed though hands on STEAM activities in your classroom. Learn to re-purpose materials you already have handy to incorporate science, engineering, peer collaboration and problem solving skills across your curriculum!
Dive in to inquiry science and project-based learning through this engaging workshop. Participants will rotate through five (5) activity stations each equipped with either a science activity or an activity bridging science throughout the arts and other curricular areas! We’ll also discuss ways to adapt activities specifically to your classroom. Great for Preschool – 4th grade!
The Engineering Design Process and the Scientific Method
Experience the difference between the engineering design process and the scientific method! We will compare and contrast the two methods, learn which method is best suited for types of projects and then experience putting each to the test through a hands-on activity. Great for Kindergarten – 6th grade!
