PLTW Launch - Spanish

Web Seminar

Join us on Monday, November 14, 2022, from 7:00 – 8:15 PM ET to learn about a case study from Connected Science Learning.

In this web seminar, the presenters share how an Engineering for Sustainable Communities (EfSC) approach in the middle grades can foster critical consciousness and support strong connections between classrooms and communities. The presenters show how critical consciousness, when integrated with learning the content and practices of STEM, is an effective way for orienting students to how and why learning STEM matters in everyday life and hoped-for futures.
