Next Generation Science Standards present a new challenge to educators who are used to state standards. Learn how to incorporate the three dimensions into your classroom instruction.
Explore how real scientists and engineers use specific practices to guide them from a question or problem to an answer or solution. Experience how to bring these practices to your classroom.
Identify what effective STEM instruction looks like in the classroom. Learn to support higher order inquiry environments that build student mastery through hands-on engagement and higher order thinking.
Go beyond rocks and minerals to recognize the interconnected systems that shape our planet and the universe. Apply this big-picture approach to explain natural phenomena, from the patterns of the moon cycle to the effects of weathering and erosion on Earth’s surface.
Broaden the traditional emphasis on life cycles by focusing on the interactions among the many systems that work together to sustain life on Earth. Learn how energy and matter connect living things to their environment and each other.
Discover how energy and matter form the foundation for all science by providing the "why" and "how" for Earth, Space, and Life Sciences. Learn how to build these connections with your sutdents throughout the year and across domains.
Master the STEM cycle by applying scientific knowledge to develop prototype technologies using the engineering design process. Learn how this interdependent cycle shapes society and the pace of innovation.
Extend students' STEM education beyond the classroom. Master developing community STEM resources that classrooms want and need. Learn how to collaborate with educators and help students identify with your STEM focus.
Learn how to overcome common barriers to high quality STEM instruction. Develop a working knowledge of student and resource readiness levels. Discover how to coach applicants and improve the quality of project proposals to maximize the impact per student dollar spent.
