iSTEM for Next Generation Science Standards,
Grade 3 - Grade 5

Trainers include Jodi Turner

Prerequisites (any one of the following):
Intro to K-5 Elementary Engineering for NGSS (held this summer), EbD TEEMS Trainings, or an equivalent TCNJ/ iSTEM  PD experience; or, check with the Center for permission on an individual basis.

Are you implementing the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards)in your Grades PK- 2 classroom? Are you Starting an Elementary STEM class or makerspace?  Do you want to brush up on basic science principles? In this 3-Day experience, participants will explore engineering design challenges for Earth & Space, Life, and Physical Science, dealing with  primary level concepts relevant to younger learners,  blending the practices of science and engineering based on NGSS.                                                                                                                                                                                                            The Focus of these days will be on Grades PK-2 best practices for design-based pedagogy, instructional and assessment materials linking Social Studies, Math and Language Arts Literacy to the NGSS. Activities will include the integration of literature and real-world connections for instruction,  creating a classroom “Maker” environment,  tips  for  unit/lesson planning, and hands on experiences with practical programs and tools for developing meaningful  iSTEM experiences for students in the fall and throughout next year!
