Grade Level(s): 3-12
Date(s): May 16, 2019
Location: NC Center for Engineering Technologies (NCCET) 1990 Main Ave SE, Hickory, NC 28602
Description: The world of STEM provides a rich environment that motivates children to want to learn more. Children often prefer reading about spiders and dinosaurs to fictional characters. STEM activities help students build vocabulary, incorporate problem-solving skills, and analyze complex text with real-world applications. Maximize classroom time by integrating literacy with the natural connections of STEM disciplines. The day will be a combination of STEM learning experiences infused with literacy strategies. The part one session will concentrate on the understanding of STEM, motion, observation versus inference, and biotic/abiotic factors.
