A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

My experience as an elementary teacher from kindergarten to sixth grade has highlighted my passion for providing students with highly engaging student-driven learning experiences. Today we are challenged to prepare our students for college and work readiness experiences that incorporate the skills and concepts included in STEM instruction. I have found that starting with highly motivating project based learning that builds on students’ natural curiosity is the bridge to their future achievement.

I strongly believe that science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are the gateways to critical thinking and developing the conceptual skills students need to understand the world around them. These skills, combined with the ability to problem solve, work collaboratively, conduct research, and be involved in planning and executing a design process are considered the foundation to innovation that is needed for our students’ future success. These are exactly the skills students are learning as they participate in STEM focused projects.

Most importantly, teaching STEM topics introduces students to a fascinating world they are eager to discover. I have seen students come alive when they can virtually dissect organisms, when they can take an active part in designing new structures, or when they are given opportunities to use exciting new technology resources to solve real-world problems that are relevant to their lives. My students are amazed by STEM projects and they are always eager to learn more.

This seminar is focused on sharing outstanding techniques for using project based learning to fully motive your students in learning about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. You will discover valuable teaching strategies, timesaving tips and practical ways for students to self-monitor their learning, plus amazing resources and tools you can easily integrate into your STEM instruction. All of these ideas are specifically geared to strengthen your current STEM curriculum.

I am looking forward to meeting you at the seminar. This will be an active, fast-paced day, filled with demonstrations, activities, resources, and practical, classroom-proven strategies for using project based learning to teach STEM.

Sincerely,
Jaime Bailey

P.S. I know how valuable your time is, so I have planned this day to be filled with practical and easy-to-implement tips for you to take back and use the next day in your classroom. Oh, and I guarantee we will have lots of FUN!
