Science in the Middle

doing 6th grade science – outside the box!

Goodbye STEM Expo

on May 16, 2014

I’ve listened to a lot of great speakers today – and attended some fun workshops! You know what feels really great? When you share something you did with your class and everyone else in the workshop writes it down! When we built lunar rovers as an in-class project, one of the things they had to buy, could not get free, was help. That’s right, any questions to me about how to do something were considered an engineering consultation! They had to add the fee to their bottom line cost. Growing Green Engineers was a terrific workshop presented by a teacher team from Little Rock Arkansas They did the Rivers, too, but also had their own unique twists to it. I hope sometime in the future I am able to introduce their problem based learning units. They presented great ways to use the Flipped Classroom model in a differentiated way. Learned about some great apps from collaborating with others in this session. I’m happy to have made the contact with these fellow educators!
