Seeking NY Elementary school teachers for FREE Engineering Workshop!
WNET is offering a free Professional Development Workshop for teachers in grades 3 – 5, as part of its new Teaching Engineering in New York project. This workshop and accompanying Teaching Engineering in New York resources are designed to help teachers incorporate engineering concepts and skills into science lessons and address the new New York State science standards.
- Date/ Time: November 7th, 2017, 9:00am – 3:00pm
- Location: WNET New York Public Media; 825 8th Ave, New York, NY
- Overview: Teachers will master the engineering design process and understand how it can be applied to their science teaching. Participants will identify engineering concepts that are already part of their lessons and discover opportunities to tie in new engineering concepts into existing and new lessons. Teachers will explore PBS LearningMedia, a free, online service that contains thousands of media-rich STEM resources aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards and specifically support the engineering practices emphasized in the standards. Participants will undertake an engineering design challenge, which will inform the planning of an engineering lesson for their classroom. Teachers will also attend 90-minute follow-up workshop in the winter to present their lessons and learn from each other’s experiences. Both workshops qualify for CTLE hours.
Refreshments will be provided!
