STRAND: Upper Elementary

Show Details

The Elementary STEM Showcase has adapted the exciting, quick-fire format of the popular Pecha Kucha presentations for this year’s STEM20: Virtual Event. This "social show-and-tell event" brings together leaders in STEM education as presenters who offer 15 slides for 20 seconds each. Each five-minute presentation will offer teaching strategies and resources in the best practices in STEM education for our youngest learners. Featured materials come from celebrated classroom educators, authors of NSTA Press books, award-winning books from the Best STEM Books list, and strategies from the NSTA preK–5 journal, Science & Children.

NGSS connections to student experiences will be highlighted during each Pecha Kucha presentation. Participants will interact with presenters about STEM investigations and resources through a Q&A session at the end of the time block. Presentations will be passionate, funny, informative, and inspirational. Join us for this new format and learn from this fast paced, energy-filled experience and leave with ideas to use with your students and colleagues.

The Elementary STEM Showcase will be presented three times:

  • 1:09 PM—focus on the Upper Elementary STEM Classroom
  • 2:47 PM—focus on the Lower Elementary and Early Childhood STEM Classroom
  • 5:15 PM—focus on Informal Education Support for the STEM Classroom

SPEAKERS:
Amanda Glover (Museum of Science, Boston: Boston, MA), Emily Morgan (Picture-Perfect Science: West Chester, OH), Christine Anne Royce (Shippensburg University: Shippensburg, PA), Judith Boyle (Divide School District #4: Divide, MT), Rebecca Kurson (Collegiate School: New York, NY), Patricia Newman (Children's Book Author & Speaker: Carmichael, CA), Collin Doruff (Isidore Newman School: New Orleans, LA)

Interview with Rebecca Skloot, Author of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

Thursday, July 30 • 6:05 PM - 6:45 PM

STRAND: Postsecondary

Show Details

Highly acclaimed author Rebecca Skloot spent more than 10 years doggedly uncovering the truth about the life, death, and ultimate “immortality” of a poor black tobacco farmer named Henrietta Lacks. Part detective story, part scientific odyssey, and part family saga, her phenomenal book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is inspired by the life of Henrietta Lacks, whose cancer cells—code named HeLa—were taken without her knowledge in 1951. Rebecca is currently writing a new book on the often controversial topic of animal research and ethics through a deeply personal story about our complex relationships with animals—their roles in our lives, and in science—and the humans who battle over their fates, and as a result, our own.

SPEAKERS:
Rebecca Skloot (Journalist, Teacher, and Author: Berkeley, CA), Brian Ogle (Brevard Zoo: Melbourne, FL)
