Check out 21st Century Community Learning Center Staff conducting hands-on-minds-on inquiry-based STEM investigations during a recent two-day STEM teacher training workshop I conducted in Washington State. The teachers were actively engaged in exploring a wide-array of STEM concepts via hands-on-minds-on investigations. From exploring structures and function in nature and in man-made objects to exploring engineering concepts. It was a great group of teachers. As always very willing to expand upon their own content knowledge as well as being introduced to many new STEM investigations to bring back to their after-school work sites. Transforming K-12 math and science education via STEM education is definitely where it’s at.
