What would happen if you let your students use real tools to solve real challenges? How do you incorporate STEM into your days that are full of other content lessons? We know STEM lessons can be a powerful tool for engaging your students in science, teamwork, literacy, and more. They are also a great way to build confidence and capture the interest of students who may struggle with more traditional content and methods of instruction. On October 27th, we are excited to offer a free opportunity for you to get first-hand experience with how to incorporate STEM into your classrooms and check out new resources from our partners at Lab-Aids!

All attendees will receive an introductory STEM lesson and resources they can use with their students, a Design Process classroom poster, and two sample lessons from Tinkering Labs that are great for small groups. Additional STEM themed door prizes will be given out too! Join us for the best 2 hours of PD of your fall!

Lab-Aids has recently partnered with the innovators at Tinkering Labs to create a new elementary STEM Module. With Tinkering Labs, your students can create their own inventions using real wood, real hardware, and real motors. They will learn STEM through project based design challenges that allow them to wonder, test, invent (and yes, play!) while learning important physical science and engineering core ideas, such as force, motion, electricity and energy. The Tinkering Labs STEM curriculum was designed for grades K-5 by a team led by Gever Tulley (https://www.ted.com/talks/gever_tulley_life_lessons_through_tinkering), founder of the award-winning, independent Brightworks School in San Francisco. This hands-on workshop challenges participants to make a vehicle to move a toy or other small object using motors, wheels, wires and other equipment. The module includes 10 engineering design challenges in the Electric Motors Catalyst, a STEM curriculum for grades K-5 that comes complete with equipment, lesson plans, assessments, embedded support for ELA, and is fully aligned to NGSS. The program is distributed exclusively by Lab-Aids.

All attendees will receive an introductory STEM lesson and resources they can use with their students, a Design Process classroom poster, and two sample lessons from Tinkering Labs that are great for small groups. Additional STEM themed door prizes will be given out too! Join us for the best 2 hours of PD of your fall!
