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.
STEM and Cognitive Development: the STEM Challenge
Participants will be given a fun STEM challenge to complete. This workshop enables participants to experience the benefits of STEM! We’ll build, create, discover unique learning opportunities STEM brings and have time for meaningful Q&A. STEM challenges can be implemented immediately in your classroom.
STEM Through Story
Participants will learn how to intentionally create a STEM activity from a children’s book. We’ll brainstorm ideas, manipulate materials to blend elements of STEM across curriculum, and create a lesson plan to bring back to the classroom.
Bridging STEM across Curriculum! Land-forms: A STEM Lesson bridging across science, geology, chemistry, art and grammar!
Participants will make salt dough to fuse chemistry into a geography lesson about land-forms. From there, teachers will extend the lesson to art and science by sculpting a land-form from their salt dough.
Teachers will proceed on to an English language lesson using descriptive words to geologically describe their land-form and what geological processes created the land-form, in addition to an advertisement/brochure to entice people to visit their land/land-form. Recreate this lesson in your classroom.
