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 reflect on your first attempts at leading design challenges online and come away with confidence and fresh perspectives to continue
2. You’ll get familiar with the Engineering Design Process and iterating
3. You’ll consider ways to build community throughout
4. All while building a self deploying device in a design challenge you can use with your students.
Bring these materials to the session with you:
Small container or small boxes
Long rubber bands
Dowels or skewers
Hole puncher (or knife)
Audience: For program staff (directors, STEM specialists, and facilitators) in your state
