In this hands-on exploratory course, participants will learn how to integrate STEM into the everyday K-5 classroom.  This course will model the engineering process of design, test, analyze, redesign while leading participants through STEM related activities and best practices of teaching and learning.  Participants will create a STEM toolbox of activities and resources and that can be implemented into everyday curriculum.

In this blended course, participants will meet face-to-face six times for four hours and experience a hands-on approach to STEM in the Classroom. Throughout these six face-to-face modules, participants will engage in hands-on learning, group sharing of ideas, and small breakout sessions that offer differentiation of learning styles.
