STEM Studio Lesson Workshops for Teachers: Pushes and Pulls Comments

The STEM Studio launches the 2012-13 season with a year-long focus on STEM unifying concepts. Through a problem-based, hands-on, minds-on format, students in grades 3-8 explore the following ideas and questions.

  • Stability & Change: Is there a balance?                                
  • Patterns: Where do they start?
  • Scale, Proportion, Quantity: What’s the big deal?                
  • Systems: How do they work?
  • Cause and Effect: Does one thing always lead to another?
  • Matter and Energy: Is there a difference?


These workshops are designed especially for teachers (grades 3-7) interested in learning how to offer problem-based challenges to students.  Each workshop will explore the questions listed above in the general content areas in the title of the workshop.

Instructors:  Kathy Chapman and Donna Migdol, Oceanside School District
