Developing a Vision, Writing Curriculum, and Designing Experiences for Elementary STEAM Labs.

Thursday, March 23 • 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - A402


STRAND: Curriculum and Assessment

Show Details

Opening a lab is a daunting process. Learn about how Fairport developed a vision, wrote a horizontally and vertically aligned curriculum, and utilized intentional decision making to design the Elementary STEAM Lab experience.

TAKEAWAYS:
Participants will leave with recommendations for creating STEAM Labs in their districts based on the blueprint that Fairport used to launch Labs that incorporate the NGSS Engineering Design standards, Computer Science and Digital Fluency Learning Standards, and a focus on social-emotional learning.

SPEAKERS:
Travis Wood (Fairport Central School District: No City, No State), Kristin Larsen (Honeoye Falls- Lima CSD: Honeoye Falls, NY)

PrimaryAI PowerPoint Presentation for NSTA 2023

STRAND: Technology and Media

Show Details

Learn about the PrimaryAI project and how it integrates artificial intelligence and computer science education into elementary life science.

TAKEAWAYS:
In this presentation, you will learn about PrimaryAI, a project that uses a rich, problem-based learning scenario in which students are tasked to gain experience with AI and apply their knowledge to help an endangered species.

SPEAKERS:

STRAND: STEAM or STEM

Show Details

Computational thinking and computing education have the potential to develop students’ higher-order thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, and communication skills in ways that can advance learning in interdisciplinary ways and can be done even with our youngest minds.

TAKEAWAYS:
We will focus on how we can embed computational thinking skills into student learning by using background knowledge from multiple subjects to design and implement curriculum that allows for all students to have access to higher-order thinking and problem-solving skills in real-world situations.

SPEAKERS:
Wyman Khuu (KIPP NYC: No City, No State)

Integrating Robotics into the Elementary Science Classroom

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

Georgia World Congress Center - B216

Engineering Continuum
Slide Deck for Presentation Robotics Integration

STRAND: Teaching Strategies and Classroom Practice

Show Details

In this session attendees will engage with a robotics lesson and evaluate the interdisciplinary lesson that integrates robotics into the science classroom. Many times, robotics materials are utilized solely in a competition setting but the focus of this session is daily instruction.

TAKEAWAYS:
Robotics integration in the science classroom addresses all three dimensions (SEP, CCC, & Core ideas) providing students with one or more of the following instructional domains: Engineering, Coding, and/or Science Practices.

SPEAKERS:
Rabieh Hafza (Henry County Schools: McDonough, GA)
