Enhancing Science Content in a Graphic Novel: Bridging the science literacy gap to enhance water literacy

Saturday, March 25 • 8:45 AM - 9:15 AM

Georgia World Congress Center - B306


Show Details

Come hear our ideas on how to use graphic novels in science courses by increasing the science content. We will present a learning unit we developed with The Leak. We will share student examples that model enhancing science content and learning activities to engage the development of water literacy.

TAKEAWAYS:
Attendees will learn how to enhance the science content of a graphic novel focused on community water quality issues. Real-world examples of local and national water quality issues will be shared.

SPEAKERS:
Lacey Huffling (Georgia Southern University: Statesboro, GA), Kelly Moore (Berrien High School: Nashville, GA), Heather Scott (Trinity Christian School: No City, No State)

The Can Challenge - Engineering with Heat Transfer Concepts

Saturday, March 25 • 1:20 PM - 2:20 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - C209


STRAND: Teaching Strategies and Classroom Practice

Show Details

Give students a hands-on exploration of heat transfer and insulation with this engineering & design project. Kids build an insulator around a soda can to keep hot water hot, while immersed in an ice water bath. While competing, they develop constructing skills, and analyze their process and data.

TAKEAWAYS:
Get all the files and resources to launch an engaging project applying the concepts of heat transfer (conduction, radiation and convection - things on every middle school science curriculum). You will be inspired!

SPEAKERS:
Jon Coole (Louisville Collegiate School: Louisville, KY)
