Good Morning Everyone from Kadena Air Base
Alexandra Wakely
02:02:52
I’m definitely interested in food!
DennisH
02:07:47
How do I balance reading a science book with doing science in class?
gramirez
02:07:55
You are correct. We need more time.
Gabi Wilder
02:08:21
I'm currently a teacher candidate, how do I relay to my professors that developing interest is more important than teaching to the standards so students can pass a test?
michael.shinabery
02:08:34
I have found that when you try to interest kids in science outside of school, where the kids are conditioned to testing, is sometimes difficult because they're worn out. Do you have any feedback on that.
Lillian Estrada
02:08:45
how can we generate interest in science and also meet the districts requirements? E.g. testing.
jaymecellitioci
02:08:45
Was the OST % of science learning time slide source the Cal Sci Center study, U of Washington, or other?
Charles Fulco
02:10:10
Dennis, do you think the 2024 U.S. Total Solar Eclipse will be handled differently, regarding all the students that were left inside in 2017, missing one of the most important science events in their lives?
elizabethweeks
02:10:16
I love Gabi’s question - I am the education director at a children’s museum. I’m trying to develop programming to pique the interest in science outside of the classroom!
Gabi Wilder
02:12:05
Thank you Elizabeth! I'm hoping when I get to an actual classroom that I'll have more ability to develop my teaching to pique lifelong interest in science
Kelly’s iPad
02:13:32
were the demographics for this study population broken down by gender? loads of studies have shown that girl’s interest in science drops of dramatically through school including college and then then number of young women actually going into science careers is even smaller than those who actually receive a science undergraduate degree
Alexandra Wakely
02:14:08
Interesting point, Kelly
Alexandra Wakely
02:14:59
There you go!
Alexandra Wakely
02:16:34
Something for everyone to keep in mind; these slides will all be available to you after the program concludes
Glenn
02:16:52
Thank you
deisy_flower
02:18:47
why is it that many teachers aren't teaching science anymore? but make science as something that has to earned in order for students to do science in the classroom.
elizabethweeks
02:20:27
Time! With the focus on ELA and Math, Science and Social Studies get a back seat. As an elementary educator, it truly comes down to time constraints during a day.
elizabethweeks
02:21:03
So unfortunate.
Erica Matheny
02:22:08
Can you please provide us with a list of the resources/articles used in this presentation?
DennisH
02:22:59
Parents need to be educated in the importance of supporting kids interested in science.
deisy_flower
02:23:15
I agree with Dennis.
Glenn
02:23:20
Is 'in school' restricted to traditional subjects or does it include many of the STEM clubs that exist
Flavio Mendez
02:23:21
Erica - the slides are in the program collection
valerie
02:23:57
@Michael: Let them play by giving them hands-on activities. Also survey them to gauge their interests and see how you can incorporate those into the activities you are providing.
Alexandra Wakely
02:24:59
Thank you for chiming in Valerie!
jaymecellitioci
02:25:15
Thank you, it was nicely presented
deisy_flower
02:25:33
I feel like as an educator we all need to have STEM in our classrooms and get more students to love science.
J Primm
02:26:08
Dennis, what are your thoughts about STEAM vs STEM with formal and informal education settings?
Erica Matheny
02:26:15
Thank you Flavio!
Glenn
02:26:18
Thanks
Flavio Mendez

Collection: https://learningcenter.nsta.org/mylibrary/collection.aspx?id=!plus!rhbkveR3j4_E
Alexandra Wakely
02:27:56
Check out the collection link that Flavio posted that includes all of the relevant information for tonight’s program
J Primm
02:28:27
Thanks, Dennis :)
Alexandra Wakely
02:35:58
eCYBERMISSION; check it out if you work with middle schoolers :)
Alexandra Wakely
02:36:17
The information for Connected Science Learning will be included in the collection link
Alexandra Wakely
02:38:34
Question break coming up! Go ahead and type them here
Marcos Aurélio
02:38:43
certificate?
gramirez
02:40:21
Thank you!

I have found highly effective to use the environment to encourage k-2 students to observe and describe what they notice.
jaymecellitioci
02:43:09
What are your thoughts about the top three things it might take to make science as pervasive as sports? And which individuals or groups, in your opinion, are best positioned to make it happen?
Flavio Mendez
02:43:59
April (I believe) is Citizen Science month
Alexandra Wakely
02:44:36
Here is the link Dennis mentioned: https://scistarter.org/
James Callahan
02:45:27
As a hands-on climate educator, we offer students and families opportunities to gain experience as educators (presenters), as at science festivals. It works very well for us; people love it. Comments on this?: Others with experience in students SHARING science education with the public -- out in their local community. As volunteers and interns.
Kelly’s iPad
02:45:28
NOAA has a lot of teacher PD opportunities
MelissaT
02:46:49
Arizona State University received an IMLS (Institute of Museum and Library Services) grant to partner with Arizona libraries and NISENet to provide Citizen Science kits at local libraries. In case any of you are in Arizona - could be something you could do. https://libguides.asu.edu/citizenscience/communityhubs
Alexandra Wakely
02:48:48
YES! Parent involvement :)
DennisH
02:49:27
Maybe start by connecting science to sports, like launch angle, exit velocity, etc.
jaymecellitioci
02:50:18
Thank you so much for articulating this, Dennis!
gramirez
02:50:23
Science is connected to everything! Create the connections for students and fellow teachers. No many people identifies science in their daily activities.
Theresa
02:50:28
Thank you for an informative discussion. And hosting it virtually.
gramirez
02:51:05
I second Theresa. Thank you for making it affordable for all!
elizabethweeks
02:51:51
Very informative! Thanks for all the great thoughts about integrating science in and out of school! A great insight for an educator at a children’s museum!!
michael.shinabery
02:52:20
Enlightening and motivational. Thanks!
