A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

When my school transitioned to a STEM model, it was like getting a fresh start in teaching! I can’t wait to get to my classroom each day and my students love the projects they get to do. I am excited to share my enthusiasm with you! I plan to give you all my ideas, strategies, projects, and tips so you can enhance and strengthen your own STEM instruction using project based learning. Don’t worry, my school had no STEM grant money, but we made it a successful program. I will show you my best ideas that are low cost and high in return.

During the seminar, you will learn classroom-proven strategies, detailed instructions for projects and activities, web resources, research tips, and how to group and engage students in collaborative problem solving. I will cover the how-tos of project based learning and how it fits perfectly with STEM related skills and concepts. At the end of the day, I promise:

  • You’ll walk out with ready-to-use projects in hand
  • You’ll learn how I saved thousands of dollars while implementing a rich project based curriculum
  • You’ll learn how to reach students who have checked out of traditional instruction
  • You’ll know how to integrate science, technology, engineering, and math into cohesive units students will love
  • I’ll give you my best team-building strategies that not only help students foster important cooperative skills but help them connect with the content at the same time

Project based learning and STEM activities help students prepare for tomorrow’s world. STEM careers are the fastest growing segment in the job market. I’m happy knowing that our students are not only actively excited about learning, but that they are also gaining some of the most valuable skills they will need to succeed in school and beyond. I can’t wait to share with you what I have found works! We will have so much fun that you will want to race back to your classroom to get started!

Sincerely,
Brad Fulton
