Title:STEM Read Field Trips: Learn the STEM, Live the Book (P157)
Description:Are you tired of taking your students to the same old places to look at the same old artifacts and animals? Do you want a field trip that actually relates to your curriculum and aligns to NGSS and Common Core standards? STEM Read creates fun, hands-on games based on popular fiction books. Our high-energy, interactive field trips give students a chance to interact with text, participate in problem-solving challenges, and explore cool STEM concepts. Our events feature books like I Survived by Lauren Tarshis, Fuzzy Mud by Louis Sachar, Quarantine by Lex Thomas, Feed by M.T. Anderson, and more. In this session, you can play some of our latest challenges, explore our free resources, and learn how you can bring students to our live events or run events at your school or library.
