Inspiring Young Scientists Through STEAM Education

More

Our world changes every day, and with that, our teaching practice does to: there is always more to learn as a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) educator. In this three part series, we’ll look at ways to inspire our young scientists and make concepts such as data and computational thinking engaging!  Register for the three part “Live Learning” experience: Inspiring Young Scientists Through STEAM Education.


Helping Students Interpret Data
March 19th @7PM ET

Data,data, data..data is everywhere! How do we teach students to interpret data? To care about data? All the cool things that can be done because of data? Look no further, join us on this LIVE conversation with NASA experts to explore how they brought visualizations of the Earth to the palm of your hands all using..you guessed it…DATA!

Our NASA scientists will join our PBS Digital Innovator All Star hosts, Bobbi Starling and Sebastian Byers to talk about STEAM education, and highlight exciting resources and models that you can immediately implement in your classroom.

PBS will provide a certificate of attendance for each one hour virtual professional learning event.


Teaching Computational Thinking

March 26th @7PM ET

Teachers, you won’t want to miss out on this live conversation with the one and only Josh Caldwell from Code.Org! Josh, a former classroom teacher, is the author of “Creative Coding”, and the curriculum lead at Code.Org. This one hour live learning event will dive into how you can help students think about computational thinking in artful, creative, digestible and fun ways!

This is the second in our three-part, “Inspiring Young Scientists” series for educators interested in STEAM topics.  Josh will join PBS Digital Innovator All Stars, Vinny Chiaramonte and Aaron Maurer, to talk about coding and STEAM education, and will highlight exciting resources and models that you can immediately implement in your classroom.

PBS will provide a certificate of attendance for each one hour virtual professional learning event.


Exploring Models Inspired by Nature

April 2nd @7PM ET

How many of your students know that velcro, helmets and wind farms are all inventions inspired by ideas we see in nature?  In this last of our three-part “Inspiring Young Scientists” series, world renowned anatomist Dr. Joy Reidenberg, along with Megan Schuknecht from the Biomimicry Institute, will join us to talk about how to engage our students, and get them excited about science and design innovations that were inspired by nature.

Dr. Reidenberg and Megan will join PBS Digital Innovator All Star Sharon Clark to talk about STEAM education, and highlight exciting resources and models that you can immediately implement in your classroom.

PBS will provide a certificate of attendance for each one-hour virtual professional learning event.


This event is organized by PBS, WSKG, and presenting partners. By registering, you are allowing these event organizers to contact you.

This virtual professional learning opportunity is powered by OVEE: a shared media viewing experience. Created by ITVS and funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), OVEE combines quality HD media and livestream content with the community-building conversation of social media in a single-screen experience.

Through OVEE, filmmakers, educators, public media stations and other partners create online screenings that bring together fans, students, subject experts and special guests to watch streaming media and chat live in a virtual theater. The OVEE chat enables them to discuss the topic, share resources, and ask questions of panelists and experts featured in the video.
