Panels and demonstrations have long been part of educational conferences. However, in today’s constructivist STEM classroom teachers are expected to allow students “to do” learning. Given this viewpoint, the Sci-Tech Festival Kick-off is going to provide interactive hands-on learning opportunities for educators.
During each 50-minute session there will be 2-25-minute rotations. During each rotation participants will be able to actively learn about, explore, and “play with” a form of educational technology they can use in the K-8 classroom. After each session teachers will leave with resources they can take with them to continue the excitement and learning in their schools. These sessions are designed or teachers and adults and are not designed students.
