Come out and try to program Robolink’s CoDrone with Arduino or Snap! Whether you are beginner or experts, CoDrone would be great to play with!
Notebook will be provided with a format for student reflection to incorporate in their daily instruction.
Practice creating three-dimensional objectives that incorporate the 5Es and notebooking to enhance their current instruction
This presentation is designed to give teachers the skills, knowledge, and resources to start their own school-wide or grade level STEAM challenges. We will share our experiences and resources from the four school-wide challenges that we created and implemented for our 6th , 7th, and 8th graders. After a brief overview, participants will experience a challenge first hand. We will focus on key planning elements that will help a school-wide design challenge like these be successful. Participants will learn how to integrate common core ELA and Math standards while engaging in these NGSS Engineering themed challenges.
You will experience the engagement and critical thinking that students benefit from while working through the Engineering and Design Process. When students ask a question and design a prototype to solve a problem or disrupt an industry, they are on their way to becoming global learners. You will explore ways to connect engineering to the NGSS and Common Core Standards. Help your students become global learners!
Student science, engineering, and computer science projects provide a great way to involve students in the NGSS Science and Engineering Practices. Join us to we explore ideas to foster creativity, ingenuity, and curiosity in your students and involve them in the Greater San Diego Science and Engineering Fair.
Fab Lab in partnership with SDGE will be presenting a workshop on electric vehicles and how they reduce our carbon footprint. Included in this presentation will be a hands on project in which participants will be able to create and take their own electric vehicle.
Fab Lab San Diego is one part of a large network of Labs across the world. Fab Lab is an abbreviation for digital fabrication laboratory.
These labs are production workshops and small-scale innovation hubs equipped with digital fabrication machines and technologies for the production of objects, tools and electronics.
Fab Labs explore the relationship between the digital and physical world, beginning as a project to extend the Center for Bits and Atoms at MIT. The project has become a worldwide network of people who investigate the popularization of new modes of production and invention that will affect all levels of our life.
There are just a few coastal lagoons left, most of San Diego has become developed with roads, houses and hotels along our coastline. Learn about the plants and animals that live here. See a short video on watershed issues that was created by talented High Tech High interns. Try out our watershed model, and pick up some docent tricks.So why are the lagoons so important? They are our bird rest stops, fish nurseries, and water filtration system.
Get your students motivated to create technologies for the future by participating in the National Exploravision Science contest. This K-12 program inspires students to have a lifelong love of science, technology, and innovation. Exploravision encourages students and teachers to explore technologies 20 years in the future. The process teaches collaborative brainstorming, research, and creativity in preparing for future breakthroughs and potential career fields.
Makerspaces in schools, libraries and museums have become popular over the past decade. There are many ways to set up and run such spaces, and those creative spaces are perfect for teaching various skills required in the engineering field. Join the Fleet Science Center to explore inquiry-based engineering lesson ideas, and using tinkering strategies for your own maker space.
2 HOUR SESSION
Presenting curriculum kits based on the popular activities from the Salk Institute Mobile Science Lab for use by middle and high school science teachers in their classrooms. Teachers who participate in this training workshop will be registered to check out DNA Extraction kits to use in your own classrooms on your own schedule! THREE locations to serve you: kits are housed and maintained at Miramar Community College, Grossmont Community College and Mira Costa Community College – Oceanside.
Kits contain everything you need to do each activity for up to 200 students (more if you’re willing to clean and restock from supplies available upon request). Used kits can be returned “as is” – we’ll clean, refill, restock for you! Each kit includes access to matching curriculum materials including powerpoint presentations, student worksheets, web-based activity ideas etc. as electronic files so you can modify as needed for your classes. Full support is available from Salk Education Outreach staff and our community of scientist volunteers – we’ll even come out to your classroom for presentation and logistical support if needed (schedules allowing)
How can you provide meaningful and relevant science courses to students disinterested in the current science course sequence? This session will discuss ideas about how to provide students with all NGSS standards in a variety of contexts. The courses are designed so that students will see the same set of performance expectations in each integrated science course regardless of overarching context. This enables students to move between "tracks" and still be college and career ready upon graduation.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be an archaeologist? Discovering ancient ruins and travelling the world? Come join real archaeologist and owner of Archaeology For Kids, Cara Ratner, for an exciting and informative presentation on the real life of an archaeologist and discover ideas for incorporating this exciting NGSS science into your classroom!
Hosting a school-wide Science Day is a great way to get the parent community at your school involved in ways that go beyond being a classroom volunteer. Our goal is to dedicate a day to explore careers in science and allow students to participate in hands-on experiences with the hope of having them pursue a career in science for themselves. Discover the talents of your parent community and how to share their expertise with your students.
