I conduct STEM and Science teacher training workshops for teachers of all grade-levels, and for educators in informal learning environments. I’m iamelementalalways looking for new quality products to bring to my trainings. I came across the IamElemental action figures for girls while I was conducting research for a new youth librarian training workshop I developed “The Science of Super Heroes” to connect with the 2015 national Summer Collaborative Reading Progam “Every Hero Has A Story”. The IamElemental action figures are a great product geared towards girls. The seven female action figures represent 7 aspects of courage: Bravery, Energy, Honesty, Industry, Enthusiasm, Persistence, and Fear. These are real super hero powers that are among us in the “real-world”. I see the IamElemental action figures as a great addition to the science and STEM classroom, at home toy collection, and beyond. Looking forward to introducing teachers to these innovative and thought-provoking female action figure toys with real super hero powers. For more information about the science and STEM teacher training workshops I offer nationwide check out the teacher training page on this site, and/or complete the contact form.

Had the pleasure of introducing 40 Head Start and Early Start Home-Based Teachers to STEM practices and content last month in Pico Rivera, California. The full-day early childhood STEM teacher training workshop was sponsored by the Plaza de la Raza Child Development Organization in Pico, Rivera. We started off the day getting an idea of how STEM differs from “traditional hands-on science”. We then ventured outside to learn how to use the schoolyard, backyard etc.. to introduce and reinforce STEM practices and content such as: making observations, collecting data, journaling, etc. Back inside the classroom teachers conducted hands-on-minds-on inquiry-based STEM investigations to explore the following STEM content: shapes, patterns, structure and function, building blocks, ramps, floating and sinking, and more. As always, it was great to meet so many wonderful and dedicated teachers. They left the training excited about implementing STEM practices and content with their home-based Head Start and Early Start children and families. A big thank you to Dorothy Jones for being instrumental in organizing my visit out to Plaza de la Raza Child Development Organization in Pico Rivera, California. Hope to come back again in the near future to build upon this initial STEM training.
