2017 Milwaukee Conference Strand

Navigating STEM Through the NGSS

STEM has become a buzzword attached to everything from a two-hour project on Friday to a fully integrated learning program. A common definition of STEM education emphasizes its interdisciplinary approach coupled with real-world lessons. The focus of this strand is on creating authentic preK–12 cross-curricular connections and engaging students in real-world applications using NGSS. The NGSS integrates science with other STEM disciplines, as well as literacy. This strand will increase participants' understanding of the way the NGSS can be applied when implementing STEM lessons that are field tested and research based.
