Students do best with applied hands-on experiential learning. The ‘After Dark’ theme of this workshop is intended to provide tangible resources for educators to take abstract concepts from their curriculum and make them accessible to students with glow in the dark, phosphorescent activities to take.

Data collection and interpretation is an essential skill that hits-home the concepts students find in their textbooks. ‘After-Dark’ makes a miniature lab-course out of many of the bio/chem/phys/eng principles in ways which are memorable/relatable taking advantage of STEM tools for data collection.

NASA TechRise Student Challenge

Friday, March 24 • 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Georgia World Congress Center - C210

STRAND: Technology and Media

Show Details

Learn how the NASA TechRise Student Challenge helps students build and fly their own experiment ideas in suborbital vehicles (balloons and rockets), as well as how it helps inspire students across the nation to engage in STEM, research, and technology projects.

TechRise's unique approach to STEM enables students and educators of all experience levels to learn tangible engineering skills including coding and working with electronics. The challenge aims to engage student teams across the U.S. in the technology experiment design and flight test process.

Deep Dive with Dummies – Exploring equity in crash-testing research to teach about the Nature of Science

Friday, March 24 • 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - C206

STRAND: Technology and Media

Show Details

Go behind-the-scenes of a vehicle crash-test facility to learn about the latest research regarding equity issues and crash testing.

Is crash testing biased against women? Exploring the reality of this question offers students and teachers an opportunity for real-world studies of nature of science topics such as correlation vs. causation as well as statistical data analysis techniques and other engineering practices concepts.

Crash Science in the Classroom - Where science and engineering meet the road

Saturday, March 25 • 2:40 PM - 3:40 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - C208

STRAND: Technology and Media

Show Details

Use award-winning videos, crash-science demos and teacher tip-assisted activities including paper car crashes, egg drop cushions and stretchy slime to teach science and engineering concepts related to vehicle crashworthiness and highway safety.

Participant will learn how to access inquiry-based lessons and video-supported activities integrating STEM concepts with vehicle crashworthiness and crash avoidance technologies.
