Use NASA’s Universe of Learning integrated STEM Learning and Literacy Program (UoL) and its network of informal education partners to learn about the universe

McCormick Place - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Area, Table 27

The Universe of Learning partnerships provides STEM educators tools, from exoplanet searches and robotic telescopes to image analysis, to implement programs specific to individual audiences.

Takeaways: NASA’s UoL STEM program partnerships provide a wide range of free materials, projects and interactive activities that can easily be incorporated into any educational setting.

Let Your Inner STEM Grow

McCormick Place - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Area, Table 25

You can't grow a flower without seeds, just like students can't grow their STEM identity without a growth mindset.

Takeaways: Attendees will learn why growth mindset is a vital aspect of the foundation of students' STEM identity.

EVOLUTIONARY MOVERS & SHAKERS: Researching, Debating, and Ranking the “Top 20” Evolutionary Scientists of All Time.

McCormick Place - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Area, Table 26

Don’t debate evolution – Rather dig deeper into evolution by having your students research, debate, & rank the top evolutionary thinkers of all time.

Takeaways: Rather than stage a debate over evolution which tends to be fraught with misinformation, have your students debate & rank the top figures in the history of evolutionary thought. They can then compare their ranking with that of a group of evolutionary experts.

Integrating Science and Literacy in Elementary Teaching Programs: Evaluating Pre-Service Teachers' Use of the Touch-Talk-Text Teaching Model

McCormick Place - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Area, Table 11

Elementary preservice teachers integrate science and literacy with the Touch-Talk-Text interdisciplinary framework, allowing ALL students to access science through sensory, language, and discourse connections.

Takeaways: Attendees will gain insight into strategies for integrating science and literacy in the elementary school day, addressing issues of decreased time and resources for elementary science learning.

My Students Are Science Teachers

McCormick Place - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Area, Table 34

This session will provide examples for promoting student collaboration and acceptance in the science classroom. Students become the teacher through sharing scientific ideas and reviewing feedback.

Takeaways: 1. Using students' differences to encourage discussions of real-world problems and scientific solutions brings a sense of respect into the classroom; 2. You can incorporate students’ backgrounds into science instruction; and 3. Teaching students to be productive citizens is also a part of science learning.
