Reinventing Learning Through STEM

Corbett Center – Jul 29, 2019

Class Overview

Course Code: T&L 2900, Reinventing Learning Through STEM (STEM Camp Edu)

This event will provide an engaging, hands-on experience to learn and teach STEM for K-12 educators. Using the 4 pillars: Explore, Make, Design and Innovate, attendees will engage in tools and resources that encompass a wide spectrum of STEM education. Teachers will discover ways to reinvigorate classroom curricula and discover the power of learner-centered, authentic STEM learning experiences.

In a world that’s becoming increasingly complex, where success is driven not only by what you know, but by what you can do with what you know, it’s more important than ever for our youth to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to find problems, gather and evaluate evidence, develop theories, design and test prototypes and find solutions. All young people should be prepared to think deeply and collaborate to become the innovators, educators, researchers, and leaders who can solve the most pressing challenges facing our nation and our world, both today and tomorrow.

Attendees will experience and pursue the pillars through speakers, panel discussions, hands-on sessions, and events such as networking, team design challenges, a STEM innovation playground, and makerspaces. Participants will be able to define and articulate STEM education by developing a personalized action plan to advocate the importance of STEM in their schools.
