STEM Studio Lesson Workshops for Teachers: Pushes and Pulls
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.
