Professional Development

Everyday STEM Series for K-5 Educators

Everyday STEM is a series of professional development units. These units bring you rock-solid methodologies based on classroom experience for integrating STEM into your classroom every day!

This is not a set of lessons with a box of stuff. Everyday STEM is a professional development program that integrates STEM into all aspects of classroom learning. STEM concepts and principles are inherent in everyday life – Everyday STEM helps teachers bring them to light! For instance, a teacher might be reading The Three Little Pigs to his or her class. While this book is not known as a STEM giant, what better time to begin to get students thinking about materials science and structures. Consider:
Why was the wolf able to blow down the straw house – but not the brick house? And with the asking of simple questions, students make the connection!

Unlike programs that require large investments of classroom time (not to mention $$$), Everyday STEM teaches teachers how to leverage what they already do every day to apply STEM concepts. It is this application of STEM that connects with students – tying everyday things to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. And when those connections are made every day, students become acclimated to thinking about the world in a STEM context.

Everyday STEM – let it help you make STEM connections every day!
