Problem Based STEM Education Workshops for Teachers: Simple Machines Part 1 Comments

The IDEAS Institute presents Problem Based STEM Education Workshops for Teachers of Grades 3-7. The Simple Machines: Part 1 workshop will be held on March 9, 2013. It is quite a Balancing Act! Use levers and balances to discover the science behind machines.  How is the fulcrum related to a math equation? What is an equality? Discover how variables are solved as you make work easier!


About the Problem Based STEM Education Workshops for Teachers of Grades 3-7: Integrated STEM learning brings out the mathematician, scientist and engineer in students. With both the process and skills practiced and applied within math, science, engineering design and technology, students see themselves as problem solvers who eagerly take on challenges as they tackle big ideas. In this series of interdisciplinary STEM workshops, teachers will connect the disciplines through real world applications that address 21st century skills.

Instructors: Kathy Chapman and Donna Migdol, Oceanside School District


Cost: $50 per workshop for 2 hours toward professional development credit.  Certificates for two hours toward professional development credit will be distributed at the close of each workshop.


All Problem Based STEM workshops will be held on Saturdays from 9 - 11 a.m. in the Hofstra STEM Studio, Hagedorn Hall, Hofstra South Campus.
