Using Build Challenges to Teach and Apply the STEM Design Process

December 14 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Free

In this webinar, attendees will learn about an innovative STEM design process as well as opportunities to apply it through specialized build challenges. This hands-on method of teaching involves identifying the design problem, exploring it, planning, creating, and testing. Webinar participants will try out the process as a “student” and then reflect and collaborate to plan on using it in their own spaces, whether in a classroom, media center/library, after school activity, service learning opportunity, and at various age groups. Attendees are asked to bring about 10 sheets of printer paper, some scotch tape, and a pair of scissors to the webinar, as well as a willingness to participate.
