STEM Designs: Real-Life Problem Solving

This is the second workshop in our STEM/STEAM Design series. This workshop is for anyone who wants to implement a STEM unit, whether you are a seasoned STEM instructor or just starting out.

This is the second workshop in our STEM/STEAM Design series. This workshop is for anyone who wants to implement a STEM unit, whether you are a seasoned STEM instructor or just starting out. The workshop begins with an overview of how and why we construct real-life problem-solving units and an explanation of the Engineering Design Process. Next, participants will experience four real-life topics: oil spills, earthquake resistant buildings, access to water, and overcrowded schools. For each topic, participants will explore specific aspects of STEM designs, such as how to select topics, the 5E inquiry model, identifying the best STEM materials, and connecting to the students’ life experiences. Participants will receive all of the lesson plans covered in the workshop and leave with a solid understanding of how to create real-life problem-solving STEM units for their classrooms.
