STEM-Tastic Elementary Teacher Series - 1.0 CEU

The course is part of a series of five self-contained sessions aimed at developing teacher understanding and implementation of science, technology, engineering and math practices at their school sties and in their classes. Participants will develop new tools and strategies to take back to their classrooms, while engaging and learning through experiential activities that model approaches that garner a deeper conceptual understanding of the content. The focus of the sessions is to help teachers understand the Next Generation Science Standards practices and methods and integrate them into their own teaching. In addition to experiencing the science, technology, engineering and math practices, participants will hear about the learning theories that support the deeper understanding of content and cross-cutting ideas through authentic activities that focus on developing, in our students, the dispositions of practitioners in the field.

  • Get Going with Lego Mindstorms
