ASEE’s annual Workshop on PreK-12 Engineering Education is a full day of authentic hands-on activities, networking opportunities, and curriculum sharing that teachers can immediately use in their classes. As state science consultants and educators, you understand the power of engineering to engage students and inspire deeper learning. This workshop offers teachers an opportunity to engage in similarly exciting open-ended challenges on topics ranging from wind harvesting to wearable tech.
There are 36 breakout sessions in total, most taught by engineering faculty from around the country, culminating in a curriculum exchange. Several sessions may be of particular interest to elementary teachers, including Novel Engineering (literacy & STEM), and Squishy Circuits, a design challenge that uses play dough to teach about electrical circuits. High school sessions include equity in project-based learning and precollege experiences that support success in first-year engineering.
Here's the schedule and details:
When: Saturday, June 24
Where: Columbus Convention Center, Union Ballroom (and rooms A110-120)
Time: 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Cost: $35 for PreK-12 teachers who are ASEE members; $75 for teacher non-members (includes 1-year membership in ASEE and P-12 Division)
Here’s the link to REGISTER.
Participants will receive Certificates of Completion which can be used toward continuing professional education credits.
Please forward this information to your state STEM networks as well as to any Columbus-area educators who might benefit from attending.
Thanks for fielding this request and happy graduation season!
