How do we make STEM experiences engaging and accessible for K-12 educators and students while ensuring curriculum is driven by learning standards? This session is intended for K-12 educators who are interested in learning about the guiding principles of STEM integration. Participants will experience interdisciplinary STEM lessons as examples of what the guiding principles look like in action, and consider how these principles could be implemented in their classroom.
This Introduction to STEM Integration Across the K-12 Curriculum workshop will be held in Room 221 of the Bates Commons Building at Bates College, 136 Central Avenue in Lewiston. Lunch and breaks will be provided.
