What distinguishes a STEM/STEAM school from other schools? This session will provide an overview of how culture, curriculum, and connections to the community work together to support STEM best practices for a school-wide approach.
STEM and PBL go hand-in-hand, but what does it mean to implement design thinking, problem-based learning and more? How do you create a school culture and systems to support STEM pedagogy in the classroom? STEM leaders from across Ohio will guide participants through a deep dive into PBL and demonstrate how it is used a launch pad to personalizing student learning.
How can partnerships deepen the education experience for students and the community? How do you create a strong partnership culture in your school? Participants will learn the role of partnerships in STEM from the Quality Model for STEM and STEAM schools. We will explore the nature of partnerships, provide time to brainstorm and share potential partnerships based on curriculum, events, and community needs. STEM Leaders from Ohio’s STEM designated schools will share their experiences and how community partnerships positively impact learning for all students.
