Our #SciencingAndEngineering Collection will include videos directed at students along with videos directed at teachers highlighting best practices for engaging students. Teachers can either use the videos or they could utilize the videos as professional development and then engage their students using them completely offline (preferred). The focus of this collection will be on phenomenon-driven 3-dimensional science instruction aligned to the new Arizona Science Standards. As always, we will also focus on #STEMontheCheap lessons which require inexpensive materials that make rich learning opportunities.
