Program Abstract

Looking for ways to "do STEM" in your science classes? Learn how some teachers are using coding and engineering to have their students model solutions that solve real-world issues – learning that is key for future careers. Veteran science educators, Mike Smith and Tami Plein, will walk through ways that STEM can be incorporated into your science classroom. Both presenters will share their experiences and projects that use STEM to engage students in science topics and processes that follow science standards.
