ABOUT THE ​COURSE

What will we learn?

This depends on you! What do you need to learn in order to engage your students in STEAM-based learning? What standards-based projects can you share? What tools, tips, and tricks for facilitating STEAM-based learning in the classroom 

Participants benefits...

  • Time and feedback to design standards-based STEAM curricula you can implement with your learners immediately.
  • Ongoing professional and social support as you innovate with your students.
  • Networking with different types of innovative educators.
  • Familiarity with local makerspaces and programming.

Who should ​take this course?

Anyone who identifies as an educator in any capacity. This is a great chance for teaching artists, community-based educators, after-school educators, library-based educators, and traditional and non-traditional classroom-based educators at all levels to share and build knowledge related to STEAM-based teaching and learning.
