Join us for a hands-on FoodPrints lesson that explores the Three Sisters Garden to teach teamwork, SEL practices, cooperation, groups discussion, and more!

TAKEAWAYS:
1. Engage in a hands-on engineering investigation to design and build a Three Sisters Garden model and learn the Native American legend of the Three Sisters Garden as participants work in groups to explore the themes of teamwork, cooperation, and empathy as it relates to their investigation and the legend. 2. Participants will practice strategies to engage students in discourse and develop habits for discussion and collaboration through a series of hands on investigations, as well as explore tools for assessing through discourse. 3. Explore the FoodPrints Curriculum’s interdisciplinary approach to teaching elementary science lessons with garden and food education themes, and gain free access to our lessons and resources for Pre-K through 5th grade.

Come join a pharmaceutical research team! Go through the process of making a safe, cheap, and effective antacid while collaborating with your teammates.

TAKEAWAYS:
1. Practicing science is more than just knowing content, it requires soft skills; 2. Current good manufacturing processes (CGMP) are required for a reason and students should be familiar with them prior to entering the career field; and 3. There are methods for letting students drive the investigation without losing “control” or instructional time.
