Tuesday, March 18, 2014 Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math Institute for Early Childhood and Youth Development Professionals
The EducationPlus Learning Department is proud to support the ARCHS Spring Institute for Early Childhood & Youth Development Professionals. ARCHS is hosting a full day of professional learning opportunities with a fantastic lineup of leading edge STEAM experts from across the St. Louis region.
ARCHS hopes educators will take advantage of the expertise from EducationPlus, Box Cars & One Eyed Jacks, Gateway Greening, The Magic House, Quirkles, St. Louis Science Center, University of Missouri 4-H Robotics, and more on this full day of learning.
The spring institute is designed to offer ways to learn from area educational leaders, as well as from each other with a focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) from 8 am – 3:30 pm on Saturday, April 5, for just $45.
Common Core State Standards, College and Career Readiness Standards, and the Next Generation Science Standards place great emphasis on a multi-disciplinary approach that increases interconnectedness among all disciplines and engineering. “Putting the “E” in STEM: Strategies for Training Engineers In Your Modern Classroom” offers middle and high school teachers from all disciplines an introduction to essential principles of engineering, places to find resources, easily accessible tools, and basic ways to begin including engineering principals into their current curriculum. Curriculum coordinators and administrators are also encouraged to attend. Learn more from Dr. Bridgette Davis of Louisiana State University’s School of Education on April 21. Registration is available online; members pay $150 for a full day of learning.
According to www.cilc.org, Independence Seaport Museum focuses on engaging visitors with the rich past, present and future of the Delaware and Schuylkill rivers by building on vibrant collections, historical archives and engaging programming. ISM focuses on trade, commerce, shipping, immigration, ship building, military, fishing, recreation, transportation, science and technology. This content provider has offered videoconferences since 2010.
The museum recently posted several program offerings that sound really interesting, including:
- African American Mariners at Sea
- WWI- The Forgotten War
- Real Pirates of Philadelphia
- The China Trade- Economics,Past and Present
- WWII-Submarines and Naval warfare
Their videoconferences range in cost from $125 per session to $145 per session. I’m looking forward to connecting some St. Louis area schools with these programs!
COSI Columbus produces very popular science videoconferences for students in elementary through high school. St. Louis area schools connect to their programming throughout the year! Click on the logo to the right to see the details on all their videoconference offerings, which include Gadget Works, Weather Watch, In Depth: Autopsy, Surgical Suite, and Experts on subjects like climate change, logistics management, forensic psychology, and genetic disease. Some of their programs are point to point, while others are multipoint, so your class could be connected with an expert as well as other students across the country.
