STEMAZing STEMinars, Workshops, and Institute

Everything you need to reflect and refine your teaching practice! Experience new lessons from the student perspective while still wearing your teacher hat. Southern Arizona teachers walk away from workshops and institute strands with the materials and supplies they need to immediately engage their students.

Saturday, April 3, 2021 - Virtual via Zoom - For PreK-HS Teachers

Let's have some pHun! Back by popular demand is the Games for STEM workshop in which you will learn how to play various games, how to hack various games, and make a game or two also! Whether building spatial skills, math skills, or strategy skills, games are a great way to engage students of all ages.

Teachers in southern Arizona will walk away with a $50 STEMAZing Kit which will allow you to immediately play some games with your friends, family, and students! You must be able to pick up your kit from the Pima County School Superintendent's Office in downtown Tucson (200 N Stone Avenue) the week before the workshop.

Teachers outside of southern Arizona are welcome to register as Virtual ONLY participants. You will be able to participate in the virtual workshop and you will receive all the lessons plans and game templates. You will not receive a STEMAZing Kit although a list of recommended supplies will be sent in advance of the workshop.

Special thanks to Tucson Electric Power for powering this STEMAZing Workshop!

#SciencingAndEngineering 2021 - Session 3.4

Tuesday, April 13, 2021 - Virtual via Zoom - For PreK-HS Teacher

4:00-5:00 pm - FREE - 1 recertification hour

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 supports the new Arizona Science Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.

Special thanks to the Arizona Department of Education for hosting this STEMinar series!

Saturday, May 1, 2021 - Virtual via Zoom - For PreK-HS Teachers

Join us as we explore the art of storytelling and its interconnection to STEM! Let us share a powerful secret with you – graphs are just stories waiting to be told. Engage with graphs in new ways, which harness the power of storytelling. Using #STEMAZingPictureBooks, explore how the systems thinking can unlock new ways to process information and make sense of the world. Walk away with new tools for understanding change over time, how science really works, and how to put these practices into action in all subject areas!

Teachers in southern Arizona will walk away with a $50 STEMAZing Kit, which will allow you to immediately use these picture books and tools with students of all ages! You must be able to pick up your kit from the Pima County School Superintendent's Office in downtown Tucson (200 N Stone Avenue) the week before the workshop.

Teachers outside of southern Arizona are welcome to register as Virtual ONLY participants. You will be able to participate in the virtual workshop and you will receive electronic versions of all the lessons and resources provided to local educators. You will not receive a STEMAZing Kit although a list of recommended supplies will be sent in advance of the workshop.

Save the dates! Mark your calendar to join us for STEMAZing Institute 2021 in June.

The first week, June 1-3, will offer two strands on robotics. One strand will focus on developmentally appropriate early childhood computation thinking for PreK-2nd grade teachers and the other will focus on differentiating coding for students from 3rd-high school using Edison robots.

The second week, June 8-10, will offer two strands on life science and the nature of science. One strand will focus on using school gardens to cultivate connections to all subject areas. The other strand will focus on using insect behavior to do real science using the science and engineering practices.

Cost for the three-day strands is just $75! Participants will walk away with 18 recertification hours and a STEMAZing Kit worth hundreds of dollars to fully engage their students with what they have learned.

All institute strands will be held virtually using Zoom.

Special thanks to Tucson Electric Power for their continued title sponsorship of the STEMAZing Institute!

Registration coming soon!
