A Message From Your Seminar Leader
Without question, a well-prepared, innovative science, technology, engineering, and mathematics workforce is crucial to our nation’s health and economy. You likely have passion and enthusiasm for teaching STEM, but lack the time and resources necessary to extensively research STEM-based strategies. Integrating STEM need not be equated with reinventing everything that is already being done within the classroom! Without adding more to your plate, you can focus on implementing the crucial STEM skills that have the greatest impact on learning.
During this one-day, strategy-packed seminar, I will share powerful, cutting-edge instructional techniques that will excite and inspire you and your students! I will demonstrate practical, classroom-ready ideas for incorporating STEM as a way to enhance your students’ learning and increase achievement. You will learn trusted, proven strategies for integrating STEM in a way that will strengthen what you already do in the classroom. These are ideas that work and will build on your existing successes!
I invite you to join me for this valuable and exciting day during which I will outline multiple strategies and tools for actively engaging your students in a diverse range of meaningful, hands-on STEM activities that will help them become “future ready.” You will leave with dozens of technology ideas, apps, websites, and strategies that encourage a more learner-centered and activity-based classroom style that will result in greater overall academic achievement. You will discover that by identifying specific skills that students should develop and select sound instructional tools and techniques to build those skills, you can “STEM-up” your teaching without feeling overwhelmed.
I am looking forward to sharing detailed and effective techniques to help you integrate STEM into your lessons and projects. I want you to leave feeling empowered, not overwhelmed, to implement STEM in your grades 6-12 classrooms.
P.S. You will leave this seminar inspired, enthusiastic and ready to infuse innovative STEM techniques into your current instructional approaches, along with a resource handbook to help you when you return to your classroom!
