Abstract Details (PID = P180)
Title:Deepen your students' STEM experience through Inquiry/Engineering (P180)
Description:Trying to figure out how to relate to your students? Trying to figure out what to do for a unit and make it more practical or applicable to the students? Trying to figure out where to go to find material or resources to use? Trying to change and look for activities that can support the NGSS or the science and engineer practices vs. inquiry? This workshop will help you find resources for you to create activities for many areas of chemistry. Learn how to incorporate topics that students are interested in to come up with ideas for lessons as well as create one whole unit on a topic. Using many common, everyday materials are used to show relevant and engaging ways to present some difficult science concepts. Students will be able to understand many different chemistry topics through activities which relate to interests of students such as: cosmetics, bioplastics, medicine, etc. Many labs and demonstrations that make chemistry concepts easier to teach and learn will be shared using things that students already know, but truly do not understand how it works or why we use it. These activities will show students the importance of the concepts they learn in traditional classes, how they interact with other disciplines and lend the way to adding more engineering practices and inquiry / critical thinkers in the classroom.
