Goals

We look forward in Workshop #2 making connections to build a lifetime of encouragement and support for one another.

1. Keep yourself from feeling overwhelmed.

2. How can you plant the STEM seed within your community.

3. Stepping back to allow creativity to grow.

Creative Initiatives

Adaptable to any age or subject, CoSpaces Edu lets kids build their own 3D creations, animate them with code and explore them in Virtual or Augmented Reality.

TeachEngineering is a digital library comprised of standards-aligned engineering curricula for K-12 educators to make applied science and math come alive through engineering design

Community Partnerships

Grant idea: can your students use their knowledge of STEM to create a tool or resource to help solve a community issue?

STEM Kits: a small group of students from Trinity/Bergan STEM club create STEM kits for students in homeless shelters. The kits included a small K’NEX set with a booklet of STEM challenges for the child to complete. When a child arrived at the shelter they could take the kits and keep them. Students learned about poverty and the challenges of breaking the poverty cycle. Can creative play lead to an innovative spark?

TEC21 Challenges

1. STEM: Continue to grow your self-efficacy. You must get creative to expect creative.

2. Community: Find a community partner and begin growing the relationship.

3. Spiritual: Be a resource to at least one new person on your faculty before we meet again.
