STRAND: STEAM or STEM

Show Details

Come and join us in this session where we will put Color in the center of the scene and sequence traditional chemistry topics threaded together.

TAKEAWAYS:
Teachers will be able to carry home an alternative Chemistry teaching method. We will uncover together a sequence of topics through an innovative perspective that uses other fields like art to get into deep chemistry concepts.

SPEAKERS:
Paula Daurat (St. Andrew's Scots School: Olivos, 0)

STRAND: STEAM or STEM

Show Details

Replace demoralizing competition with creativity, laughter, and inspiration by giving students open-ended projects. This talk will feature 3 creative circuits projects—LED greeting cards, Arduino-based holiday lights shows, and LCD quotes displays.

TAKEAWAYS:
Open-ended projects are engaging, technically rigorous, and boost student confidence. Teachers will walk away with 3 concrete project ideas ready for implementation, as well as the inspiration to design more.

Integrating Computer Science, Robotics, and Data Analysis into Physics Labs

STRAND: STEAM or STEM

Show Details

This session will give a brief overview of how to use block-based coding, programmable robots, and data analysis to teach students concepts of physics/physical science in a fun and engaging way. We will also discuss how to adjust the level of the activities to meet the needs of different grades.

TAKEAWAYS:
Attendees will learn how to implement block coding, robotics, and data analysis into their physics/physical science labs in order to reinforce students' understanding of motion, forces, momentum, and other mechanics concepts.

SPEAKERS:
Alan Cummings (Physics Teacher: No City, No State)
