Engineering and Design

Introduction to Active Learning in STEM

During this one-week introduction to the principles of active learning in STEM, we’ll introduce several strategies such as facilitating student discourse, modeling, multiple representations in problem solving, and curriculum design.

NGSS and Phenomena-Based Learning

In this workshop, participants will learn how to use phenomena to engage students in Next Generation Science Standards, which integrate science practices, crosscutting concepts, and disciplinary core ideas.

Design, Engineering and Maker Cultures

This workshop explores ways to infuse engineering, design thinking and affordable makerspace technologies into your curriculum.

Phenomena First: Engaging Students in Next Generation Science Standards

In this workshop, participants will learn how to use phenomena to engage students in Next Generation Science Standards, which integrate science practices, crosscutting concepts, and disciplinary core ideas.

Culturally Responsive STEM Teaching

In this workshop, explore various approaches to Culturally Responsive Teaching in the STEM classroom.

Investigating Mechanics with Mobile Devices

In this hands-on workshop, we’ll model mechanics concepts such as kinematics, free fall, projectile motion, rotation and oscillations through the use of various small, mobile bluetooth sensors as well as through the application of various Apps.
