STEMAZing PD Events - STEMinars and Workshops

STEMinars: Not your typical webinar, these events will highlight ideas and lessons which are both equitable and accessible regardless of technology available (online and offline options) and regardless of socioeconomics (#STEMontheCheap lessons using readily available and/or inexpensive materials for rich learning experiences).

Workshops: These hands-on, minds-on workshops put educators into the seats and minds of their students. Workshops range from a few hours to multi-day events and include the equipment and supplies teachers need to implement these activities in their own classrooms.

All upcoming in-person STEMAZing Workshops and the STEMAZing Institute in June 2020 have been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to resume professional development workshops in Fall 2020. In the meantime, find us virtually in STEMinars and other online PD opportunities found below.

We continue to support teachers with emergency remote learning resources. Check out our growing collection of #SciencingAndEngineering videos and resources which you will find particularly useful for remote learning to engage students either online or offline. These are #STEMontheCheap resources which use either readily available or very inexpensive supplies for rich learning experiences.

Session 2 - PreK-12th Grade - Each session is unique and will highlight different parts of this growing collection. Each session will also include different STEMAZing Teacher Leaders sharing their expertise and experience at each grade band.

Looking to engage PreK-12th grade students with some sciencing and engineering? Whether in a remote learning situation or back in the classroom, learn what The #STEMAZing Project has to offer teachers (and learning coaches like parents) to engage learners to DO some real science and engineering. All lessons highlighted in the #SciencingAndEngineering collection are #STEMontheCheap – rich learning opportunities which require readily available equipment and supplies you have around the house and/or inexpensive materials available at a dollar store. They are also accessible and equitable when done either online or offline based on students’ internet access or lack thereof. These lessons showcase best practices using 3-dimensional science instruction, which support the new Arizona Science Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Click HERE to watch promo video!

A STEM Education Care Package: Stay Safe, Stay Schooled, Stay Sane

For those who have been helping young learners at home over the past few months, The Exchange wants to provide you with a science care package to help in these difficult times. Now is the time for preparing fresh, exciting ideas for keeping kids engaged. You have equipment and supplies sitting around your house which an be used to conduct science experiments and tackle engineering challenges. Did you know that free mobile apps can turn your smartphone into a data collection tool using the sensors it has to explore the world around you? With uncertainty about what lies ahead for the start of next school year, it is clear that ensuring all students have access to equitable learning opportunities, especially in science, technology, engineering, and math, need to remain a priority. Join us as this panel shares ideas that will have everyone noticing and wondering about the world around them. The panel includes Zeke Kossover from the Exploratorium, Rebecca Vieyra from Vieyra Software, and DaNel Hogan from The STEMAZing Project.

Session 5 - Early Childhood and Early Elementary STEM Focus - This session will focus on highlighting resources and developmentally appropriate practices for engaging our youngest learners, from PreK-2nd grade, using STEM lessons.

Are you engaging our youngest learners from PreK-2nd grade? Join us for a look at the #STEMAZing Lessons for Young Learners collection. Learn about developmentally appropriate practices for engaging children with noticing and wondering about the world around them. Experience #STEMontheCheap ideas for bringing rich learning opportunities to the children you teach which use materials you either have on hand or can purchase inexpensively at a dollar store. Whether in a remote learning situation or back in the classroom, learn what The #STEMAZing Project has to offer early childhood educators (and learning coaches like parents) to engage our youngest learners to DO some real science and engineering. Focused will be placed on lessons which are accessible online and offline. #STEMAZing Teacher Leaders will also be joining to share how they use these lessons, ideas, and strategies with the children they teach.
