Division 1 & 2 STEM Collaborative Community

Details

Join our STEM Collaborative Community K-6 (we will divide group to ensure you are working with peers in same grade ranges as you) where we will explore curriculum connections through the lens of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Participants in this collaborative community will take part in curriculum-aligned, hands-on learning experiences and gain access to resources and activities they can use immediately in their classrooms.

Our collaborative community will meet for [4 evenings]  throughout the school year with a different focus for each time we are together. We will examine, explore and talk about:

  • SCIENCE inquiries that promote students’ abilities to observe, sort & classify, compare and contrast and create fair tests 
  • TECHNOLOGY as we learn how we can support students abilities to use logic, algorithmic thinking, pattern recognition, critical thinking, problem-solving, managing information, communication and collaboration through the exploration of block-based coding using Micro:bits;
  • ENGINEERING through the participation in the Design and Build process using literacy and numeracy to provide context and focus; and, 
  • MATH as it relates to mental math and perseverance as a way to increase students’ reasoning and problem-solving skills.
