Teen STEM Cafés – Exciting Teens about STEM
Limited Capacity seats available

Teen STEM cafés develop leaders and excite teens about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers.  Find out how you can develop a free, fun program where teens can socialize while exploring STEM fields through activities and interaction with STEM experts. The program develops teen leaders who organize and manage all aspects of the events. Teens learn to vet the speakers, develop related activities, and ensure that the speaker shares the path to related careers.

It's All About Phenomena!
Limited Capacity seats available

In order for our students to really be "figuring it out", phenomena must be a central component in our K-12 science classrooms.  That sounds simple enough, but how do we actually do that? This session will explore why using phenomena is important for science instruction, how using phenomena has changed with the Next Generation Science Standards, the different types of phenomena, & what free resources are currently available to help teachers do this easily and effectively!

Gotta love Science!!
Limited Capacity seats available

With NGSS, teachers are needing to give students more responsibility with learning science content.  Open ended, hands on activities are the ideal way. But it can be intimidating to know how or when to allow this type of learning to happen.  I will help you learn how to let go of lectures and hold on to fun engaging activities for your students.
