Kansas Teachers Explore STEM Practices and Content During TrainingBy Diana Wehrell-Grabowski on June 10, 2015 in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Education, Teacher Training Workshops
Recently conducted two days of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) teacher training to Kansas K-12 teachers. On day one teachers were introduced to the foundation of STEM practices and content. On day two, we went deeper into the Engineering Design Process, a key component of STEM practices. Teachers were also introduced to project and problem-based learning, rubrics, and connecting K-12 children’s literature to STEM lessons. It was a great two days, the teachers were truly excited about incorporating STEM practices and content within their classrooms, as well as acknowledging the transformations that must be made to incorporate a “true STEM” program within their classroom and school. The photos below were taken during the two days of STEM training.
