STRAND: Strategies for Creating Inclusive Science and STEM Learning Environments

Show Details

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.

SPEAKERS:
Donna Young (NASA/NSO/UoL Program Manager: Laughlin, NV)

Let Your Inner STEM Grow

Friday, July 22 • 11:50 AM - 12:50 PM

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


STRAND: No Strand

Show Details

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.

SPEAKERS:
Nicole Hebert (Sacred Heart University: Fairfield, CT), Abigail Lupinacci (Student)

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

Friday, July 22 • 11:50 AM - 12:50 PM

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


STRAND: No Strand

Show Details

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.

Game Theory & Escape Rooms

Friday, July 22 • 11:50 AM - 12:50 PM

McCormick Place - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Area, Table 31


STRAND: No Strand

Show Details

Escape-room activities offer promise for fun and function in developing social problem-solving skills. Participants will learn implementation and design strategies for their own ER environments.

TAKEAWAYS:
Learn how escape rooms help to engage students in dynamic learning environments and how to begin developing up your own activities.

SPEAKERS:
Joy Barnes-Johnson (Princeton High School: Princeton, NJ), Mridula Bajaj (Mount Laurel Schools: Mount Laurel, NJ), Shefali Mehta (Princeton High School: Princeton, NJ)

Evaluating Pre-Service Teachers Use of the Touch-Talk-Text Teaching Model

STRAND: Students and Sensemaking: Promoting Science and STEM Teaching Strategies That Place Equity at the Center of Learning

Show Details

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.

SPEAKERS:
Danielle Scharen (North Carolina State University: Raleigh, NC)

My Students Are Science Teachers

Friday, July 22 • 11:50 AM - 12:50 PM

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


STRAND: No Strand

Show Details

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.

SPEAKERS:
Lindsay Simmons (Francis Marion University: Florence, SC), Sarah Driggers (Francis Marion University: Florence, SC), Abbey McLean (Francis Marion University: Florence, SC)
