Using the "M" in STEM

WEBINAR WEDNESDAY

Focusing on the "M" in STEM

Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 2 PM Eastern (1 PM Central)

Have you ever felt like "M" was a silent letter in STEM? Mathematics sometimes does not get the same amount of attention in afterschool programs as science, technology, and engineering. But Click2Science would like to help you change that!

In this webinar, Dr. Saundra Frerichs, STEM Education Specialist, will share best practices for integrating math activities into your program to help improve student outcomes. Resources for finding afterschool math activities will be shared. Dr. Frerichs will also discuss how to build staff confidence in mathematics.

Take Note! Supporting Documentation of STEM Learning

Documenting learning can be a burden at times, especially in an active out-of-school-time setting where children are coming and going throughout the program time. Yet showing evidence of learning may be the lifeline to a program’s funding and survival. In this module, review practical examples of the “why,” “what,” and “how” of STEM processes documentation. Learn how to seamlessly document learning and how to involve children in recording their own understanding and accomplishments.

Why STEM is Important to Young People

Out-of-school time (OST) can help young people to see that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) is more than an assignment in school. OST STEM activities can help youth understand that what they are learning now is pertinent to their future and the future of the whole world. Introducing children to great STEM experiences starting in the elementary years creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators. Innovation leads to new products and processes that sustain our economy. STEM experiences also prepare kids to be problem solvers and critical thinkers in life. In this webinar, we will explore the why and how of creating engaging STEM experiences.
