STEM Made Simple Virtual Summits offer breakout sessions covering a wide variety of STEM topics. These events are designed to introduce, enhance and extend educators’ knowledge and skills. These summits enable educators to strengthen their teaching skills, so that they may foster a more innovative and STEM environment. Educators are exposed to new resources and tools to develop their STEM mindset, create meaningful learning experiences with their students, and impact their educational community.
Breakout sessions may include, but are not limited to:
|Assessing STEM||STEM learning experiences tend to get messy. From building, to thinking, to creating, to collaborating - there is no denying that integrating STEM into the classroom teaches students skills they need to be successful. But, how should instructors assess a STEM learning experience? In this session, we will explore the questions surrounding STEM assessment and will put our knowledge to the test in a hands-on activity.|
|Deliberate Design||As teachers, it is our job to teach our students how to think critically and systematically in order to be successful in life. Problems and tasks are a constant in life and at times, the pathway to developing a solution is haphazard. The Engineering Design Process provides a systematic method to develop solutions to all types of problems. In this workshop, we will explore the design process by working on solutions to a real world problem from a variety of lenses.|
|Integrating the 5Es||Do you want to introduce inquiry-based learning but don’t know where to start? Introducing - the 5Es. The 5Es is a framework through which learners explore new content or deepen knowledge in a hands-on way. The 5Es framework emphasizes the importance of connecting new learning to old understandings. This workshop is a great stop for newbies and a great refresher for veterans.|
|Planning STEM Lessons||One of the challenges for many teachers is to ensure that the standards are being covered while incorporating STEM. In this session, learn how to start with the standards and build a STEM lesson.|
|Coding Discovery||Coding is a hot topic in education that powers much of the world around us. Start this session by building a common understanding of coding. Discover different types of coding and explore a variety of coding platforms and tools.|
|Student Sharing in the STEM Classroom||An important part of STEM is having students share what they have created and what they have learned. This session will explore a variety of fun and creative ways to have students share their work.|
|STEMing the Story||Literature has always provided a great springboard for lessons and activities in the classroom. Explore titles that can be used as a springboard to launch your students into a STEM lesson. Participate in our STEM the Story Challenge.|
|Dollar Store STEM||STEM provides opportunities for students to explore through hands-on learning and build with tools, materials and technologies they may not have regularly been exposed to. In this session, we will explore planning STEM experiences that utilize common, inexpensive and recycled materials to enhance inquiry and promote creativity.|
|Design Challenge||New advancements in technology are finally displaying the astonishing impact modern humans have had on the environment. One perfect example of such impact is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch found between California and Hawaii. The Ocean Cleanup scientists have estimated that a garbage patch, with an area 3x the size of France, is predominantly plastic. As one can imagine, the environmental impacts of such destruction is still being realized. One organization, the Ocean Cleanup, is trying to help clean up the human mess, but they need your help. Design a way to help clean up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch!|
