Science & Engineering Processes
For Elementary Teachers
The Next Generation Science Standards have been built, placing a large emphasis
on science and engineering processes.
This full-day workshop will help teachers begin to incorporate science and engineering practices at a new level. Topics will include:
- What 'modeling' look like in science
- Gaining a deeper understanding of what it means to 'do science' and incorporating it into the classroom
- Engineering processes & how to incorporate them
- Scaffolding students as they design their own experiments
