Participants will learn how to create a culturally
relevant science lesson using an Earth science unit on conflict minerals in
electronic devices as an example.
Participants will: 1. learn how to identify concepts that readily lend themselves to connecting and engaging students in culturally relevant content; 2. brainstorm science content that can lead to social activism; and 3. learn how to connect the NGSS crosscutting concepts and science and engineering practices.
