Project-Based Learning for STEM Workshops

Project Based Learning is natural for STEM Education. By making education transdisciplinary and hands-on, project based learning  (PBL) opportunities students build the mindsets to take on any challenge they discover in the world. Students learn how to be creative, collaborative and have grit.


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.

See our article on the goals of Maker Education.


We truly believe this is the way to teach all students! 

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.


OUR PROMISE


  • Through this workshop teachers will develop their own STEM project.
  • Teachers will plan: how they will teach the curriculum, tool or technology, real world problems for students to solve, how the students will brainstorm and create the project and how students will evaluate and redesign the product.
  • During each step teachers will participate in an activity that will expose them to the project based learning strategy that will help them teach.
  • Teachers will plan assessments for students based with a spotlight on appropriate student development thoughtful project.
