Over three hour-long sessions this fall with Technovation, you’ll become an expert in leading engineering design challenges online that help students develop the following engineering mindsets: 1) use the engineering design process; 2) work in teams; 3) evaluate and iterate; 4) persist and learn from failure; and 5) identify as engineers.
Get ready for hands-on building during each session. You’ll be part of a supportive learning community. If you are looking for a way to step up your STEAM game in a fun and active way with your kids, this is for you. Help them think like engineers to build solutions to any sort of problem!
These three sessions are for program staff (directors, STEM specialists, and facilitators) working with kids in 4th–8th grades.
1. You’ll make a plan to help your students deal with hard parts like persisting through failure and encouraging creativity
2. You’ll reflect and revisit tools introduced earlier to look at them differently
3. All while making a water collection system in a design challenge you can use with your students.
Bring these materials to the session with you:
Cardboard or foam core
Cups (with holes punched in the bottom) + water for testing
Audience: For program staff (directors, STEM specialists, and facilitators) in your state
