STEM project-based teaching and learning PD starts on October 30
The first session of the project-based teaching & learning STEM PD
starts on Wednesday, October 30, 3:30-6:30 at WPI. This session will
feature a project centered around cladograms, evolutionary trees, and
some genetics, all integrated as a STEM challenge.
Future sessions of the series include:
Meeting II: Light properties, daylighting challenge (physics).
Wednesday, December 11, 3:30-6:30
Meeting II: Indicators (chemistry). Wednesday, February 12, 3:30-6:30
Meeting IV: Programming thinking (CS). Wednesday, April 23, 3:30-6:30
This series present a truly integrated approach for teaching STEM by
introducing design challenges that require participants to use
scientific and mathematical concepts for solving a real-world
The project-based teaching and learning approach is linked to better
learning, better retention of content, and higher student engagement.
Middle and high school STEM teachers work in small groups to solve
challenge, and later discuss the activity from an educators
viewpoint. All projects and design challenges presented in this PD
aligned with the NGSS and model key elements of the MA Educator
Evaluation Model Rubric for high quality instruction.

Target Audience: 6-12 grade teachers, STEM coordinators
Cost: $40 per meeting or $125 for the entire series (there is a
