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 start (or continue!) to get comfortable supporting your kids learning STEAM online
2. You’ll learn about engineering design challenges
3. You’ll get comfortable navigating Technovation’s free resources
4. All while attempting to balance a dinosaur in a fun engineering design challenge you can try out then use with your students.
Bring these materials to the session with you:
Tape (masking tape is usually best)
Pennies or small weights
Optional: toilet paper tubes and ping pong balls
Audience: For program staff (directors, STEM specialists, and facilitators) in your state
