Have you ever wondered how to use project-based learning and STEM in the classroom? Join a group of AFT teacher leaders as they demonstrate how to incorporate the engineering design process in a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) project. Participants will design and build their project, view student samples and work samples of other STEM/STEAM (including arts) projects for grades K-8. All participants will be provided with a 6-E STEM lesson plan and design portfolio that was designed and tested in the classroom and which can be adapted for other grade levels. Part 2 will be held at 10:15 a.m. tomorrow. Participants must attend both sessions to qualify for a certificate.
Presenters: Andrea Bennett, instructional coach grades K-8, McKinley STEMM Academy, Toledo (Ohio) Public Schools; Julie A. Campbell, science support teacher, Toledo Public Schools
