Each fall, the Ohio STEM Learning Network hosts a fall convening. Traditionally, it’s been a time for network members to get together and hear what’s happening across the network and discuss plans and priorities for the upcoming year.
In July, we held a network meeting as part of the ACTE conference. There, we heard feedback that OSLN members value access to high quality professional development. This year’s fall convening is designed for teachers, specifically, teachers who are interested in engaging students in this year’s Food Security Design Challenge. All Ohio teachers who are interested in learning more about how to lead a design challenge—from coordinating logistics to aligning to content standards are encouraged to join us.
We’ve been working with our partners at EducationProjects.org, who support Ohio Corn and Wheat and the Ohio Soybean Council to plan a full day of engaging activities to help you learn about:
- Why food security matters to Ohio students
- Agriculture’s role in Food Security
- Aligning the design challenge to your content standards
- Designing and creating prototypes
Participants will also spend time at Waterman Farm, Ohio State University’s working research farm on Lane Avenue.
