A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

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, take an active part in designing new structures, or 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 two-day institute is focused on sharing outstanding techniques for using Project Based Learning to fully motivate 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.

You’ll leave this two-day institute with dozens of practical strategies for building and enhancing your STEM program. You’ll also leave with the extensive resource handbook I wrote specifically for this two-day program to help you work with your students, teachers and teams to increase STEM achievement and engagement in relevant STEM projects and activities.

Sincerely,
Jaime Bailey 


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