Teachers are experts at connecting lessons to everyday life, and bringing their classrooms into the world. Engineering is about applying science to everyday life, connecting theories and practice.
Join us to test out three curriculum-related engineering activities that you can use in your classrooms to help create the connection between science and society. Emphasis will be given to activities that relate to the ADST curriculum, including computational thinking and digital skills activities. Leave with ideas, inspiration, and free supply kits.
*Each “Engineering for Your Classroom” workshop contains unique activities. We would love to see you at multiple events! Please note that supply kits will only be distributed at the end of the day, after evaluations.
*Target Grades: Please note that we plan activities which we feel are best suited to students in these grades, however, you are welcome to attend regardless of the grade you teach as the activities can be modified to be suitable for other grades.
“Everything was extremely valuable. I appreciated how hands-on the activities were and how we were able to try all of the activities in advance so that we know how to better teach them ” – EFYC Participant
Ideas encourage teachers to take chances with everyday materials to encourage engineering questions and applications for both problem solving and communication. Exceedingly well organized in both presentation and materials provided. Guest speaker useful and cognitively challenging. Highly recommend this workshop to other fellow teachers. – EFYC Participant
