Low Tech and No Tech STEM
STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) is a necessary component of all classrooms today. As educators, we need to find ways to reach all students and help them better understand STEM topics. In this session, we’ll share a few STEM activities for educators with limited tech options and those who are simply looking for a no- or low-tech STEM lesson. We’ll also reflect on the activity suggestions and discuss possible management concerns that arise when working in cooperative groups.
As a result of this session, teachers will:
1. Explore no-tech and low-tech STEM activities;
2. Understand the engineering design process; and
3. Plan for the integration of no- and low-tech STEM activities in the classroom.
OK2Ask, TeachersFirst’s series of hands-on virtual professional learning workshops, is for teachers at ALL technology comfort levels. As these are not “sit and get” sessions, we highly recommend you attend using a computer with an updated browser (Chrome or Edge). Using a mobile device may prevent you from participating fully, jeopardizing your ability to receive CEUs.
