The Professional Development Workshop

In October and December of 2013, our team hosted and completed their first Outreach Events. 

The Professional Development workshops took place at Spalding Elementary School and focused on STEM and the Common Core State Standards. 

Teachers learned how to integrate English Language Arts and Mathematics into their science and engineering instruction using STEM journals to engage students in the scientific process, as well as the engineering design process. 

Teachers participated in hands-on NASA activities, "Mars and Earth" and "Toys in Space," as well as the "KidWind Project." Teachers learned how to meet English Langauage Arts and Mathematics Common Core State Standards with each of these activities.
