Sound Across the Curriculum – Sensing Place/Sense of Place

This 3 Part Workshops on Outdoor Project Based STEAM was developed in collaboration with the NYC Parks Department Office of Teaching & Learning Services.

Calling all STEM & STEAM-Curious Teachers! Join us for a FREE, three-part, in-person series that aims to give you and your students an oportunity to take your science and engineering lessons outside – and make intentional cross-curricular connections while we’re at it! This series will help you foster parks-based interdisciplinary teaching & learning in NYC by:

  • Introducing educators to alternative methods of parks-based research/data collection practiced by resident artist-researchers in the USFS/TNoC Arts Collaborative Program
  • Partnering STEM and Humanities teachers to co-create parks-based learning experiences that can used by other educators as inspiration and/or instruction
  • Providing the space and resources for educator teams to learn, experiment, and share with one together
  • Build awareness of/connection to educational and career path opportunities with K-12/secondary education community and NYC Parks

TEACHERS OF ALL CONTENT AREAS & GRADES WELCOME! BRING A COLLEAGUE! Music, Art, ELA, Librarians, Maker, STEM… all teachers welcome!

Please note: We take screenshots, photographs and record video of our workshops in order to publicize a positive image of science teaching, and of STEMteachersNYC – a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization – and to support future teacher leaders. If you register, you are agreeing to be photographed and to have your voice and image video-recorded. You are also agreeing to relinquish all your rights to the photographs and video recordings.

If you do not wish to be photographed or video-recorded – you must inform us before the workshop starts. For in-person workshops, we will take one photograph of your face so that we can erase your image if we happen to catch it by chance during the workshop, and we will do our best to avoid you. We would also appreciate your cooperation in positioning yourself at the edge of the group so as to help us avoid you.
