Project-Based Learning for STEM

Our unique 6 step STEM planning guide combines the engineering design thinking process and project based learning inquiry. The goal of this planning guide and workshop is for teachers to create a STEM projects to teach in their classes with their students. In this workshop teachers will walk through the series of steps to create thoughtful STEM projects for their students. We will provide a series of questions to come up with an idea for a project to do with students then identify important stages of the project's life cycle when teaching.

"The training was well received and helpful because of the reinforcement of how to specifically use robots with 20 middle schoolers." -Director of Technology Integration Independent School

During hands-on projects that students love they construct their understanding of the world. Teaching STEM Project Based Learning does not have to be complicated, it does not have to be exhaustive. It just has to be thoughtful and logical.
