STEM and Storybooks: Using Literature in the STEM Classroom

Literature helps students make connections with STEM concepts. In this workshop, we will explore ways to teach STEM through different types of literature. You will learn how to engage your students with activities utilizing key Math, Science, and Literacy concepts found in their favorite fiction and nonfiction stories!

Phun with Physics! Kinematics and Motion Graphing

Exploring physics through mathematical models and engineering design. This workshop includes a series of demonstrations and activities designed to cover overlapping concepts between the fields of introductory physics, math (primarily algebra, trigonometry, geometry and pre-calculus) and pre-engineering principles. Graphical analysis is used to model various forms of motion including one-dimensional, two-dimensional as well as simple harmonic motion. Data will be collected and processed by workshop participants, using both equipment sets and virtual applications, in an attempt to predict the outcome of various physical phenomena. Participants will gain a wealth of experience and examples of lessons prepared for immediate classroom application.
