This webinar highlighted the Action Science work of Dr. Bill Robertson, @drskateboard, who teaches youth who might otherwise have fallen through the cracks about speed, velocity and momentum at local skate parks. It includes tips for using youth interests to develop a STEM identity.
“Volunteer engineers and scientists lead free, hands-on science lab workshops throughout the school year to get more kids interested in science careers. Stuart Wecker, executive director of the nonprofit Arizona Science Lab, said the four-hour, project-based workshops have been teaching fourth- to eighth-graders “real” science since 2009 in Tempe. “We try to teach a lot of real science,” said Wecker.
S.T.E.M. Magazine is not a curriculum, it is a resource of awareness that exists to provide clarity on the subject of how we already incorporate S.T.E.M. into every teaching setting, how to encourage the creative process and cultivate curiosity in everyone. In addition, S.T.E.M. Magazine strives to encourage educators about the urgent need for this inclusion in light of their responsibility to equip students fully for their careers.
This is a recording of Click2Science’s March 6, 2015 Webinar “Digital Learning in OST”.
Metal beams are used by engineers to create many structures. The strength of a beam is not totally dependent on the type of metal used. In this activity your students will learn about the strength of different beam designs.
Hands-on activity that would take 30 minutes or less and introduce the disciplines of material science, civil engineering, and industrial engineering and manufacturing.
This step-by-step guide is full of helpful tips like “Don’t hand out the materials until you want the kids to start touching them” to important messages to share with students about engineering. Whether you are a new volunteer or a seasoned veteran, a review of this self-guided workshop will help to increase your effectiveness.
