The Challenge is On: Using Engineering and Design Challenges in Chemistry to Support ALL Learners

Friday, October 29 • 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Oregon Convention Center - B117/118/119

Show Details

Sponsoring Company: Savvas Learning Co.

Join us as we explore the ways engineering and design challenges can be used within a chemistry program to support learning and deepen conceptual understanding for diverse learners.

1. Teachers can use engineering and design challenges to reach different populations of learners; 2. Engineering and design challenges provide a strategy to support a three-dimensional classroom; and 3. Engineering challenges support historically marginalized populations as they are able to represent their learning and understanding by building a prototype and not just orally or in writing.

Beyond Labz: Realistic Virtual Labs That Bridge the Gap Between Real Labs and Scientific Inquiry

Friday, October 29 • 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Oregon Convention Center - B117/118/119

Show Details

Sponsoring Company: Beyond Labz

Built on a platform developed over 20 years, Beyond Labz creates an open-ended environment providing students the opportunity to experiment, practice, fail, discover, and learn.

1. Beyond Labz simplifies and reduces the cost and expertise needed to provide crucial laboratory experiences and practice for Secondary and Higher Ed students; 2. Attendees will learn how the labs are used for pre- and post-lab experiences, credit recovery and lab make-up, student engagement in class, and meeting NGSS standards; and 3. Basic onboarding and start-up instructions will be provided for drop-in solutions, and instructions for using some of the more sophisticated features will also be described.
