STEM Studio Lesson Workshops for Teachers: Classifying and Modeling

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


The final workshop for the 2012-2103 season, Classifying and Modeling: The Living Environment will be held on April 3, 2013.

Cost: $50 per workshop for 2 hours toward professional development credit. Register for each workshop separately, there are no prerequisites. Certificates for two hours toward professional development credit will be distributed at the close of each workshop.
