If you’re curious about STEM education, what it means, and what you should know; you may be interested in Kent ISD’s upcoming STEM Network.
Connect. Explore. Achieve. This two-day, interactive experience will give classroom teachers the opportunity to explore how area businesses use your content areas in industry. Draw connections between what you’ve seen and how you can teach your standards. Develop relevant, real world lessons you can use with your students to help them achieve success. Use group dynamics with like-minded teachers to build engaging content tied to the world of work. Come see what other districts are doing in STEM and imagine what the future can hold for your students. A portion of each event will involve a trip to a local business to observe and glean inspiration from current business practices. Sign up at the Kent ISD PD Hub (search for course number 17CR1101).
Two meetings (2 days each) are planned for the 17-18 School Year:
November 1-2; March 21-22
8am-3pm each day
Outcomes will include:
- Educators will discover resources that can be used in their classroom(s)
- Educators are part of a support system that encourages use of discovered resources
- Educators consistently connect their classroom content to the world of work; answering the question, “When am I ever going to use this?”
