NSTA’s Professional Learning Team will introduce a sensemaking task teachers
can use to engage their students in authentic, relevant science learning based
on the science ideas and STEM careers woven into the documentary film The
Hunt for Planet B, based on the goals of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope
(JWST) program. Join us to explore how the four critical aspects of sensemaking
work together to create opportunities for students’ equitable participation in
actively trying to figure out how the world works using the phenomenon of the
JWST. Dr. Jon Arenberg, Chief Mission Architect for Science and Robotic
Exploration at Northrop Grumman, will join us to share his passion for STEM to
help teachers integrate STEM career awareness into their curricula.
Attendees will receive a copy of the NSTA Press book Helping Students
Make Sense of Their World: The Next Generation Science and Engineering
A snack break is included during this short course.
NSTA wishes to thank Northrop Grumman Foundation for sponsoring this
1. Understand the critical attributes of sensemaking; 2. Strategies for intentional sequences of student interactions to provide access to participation and learning for all students; and 3. Strategies to integrate STEM career awareness into science lessons.
