Social Emotional Learning in STEM

WEBINAR WEDNESDAY

How Social Emotional Learning Prepares Youth for the Future

Wednesday, January 16, 2019, 2 PM Eastern (1 PM Central)

Social and Emotional Learning, or SEL, helps learners develop and apply skills to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions. These are just the skills that our students will need in their future, to find a fulfilling job, to get into college, to get along with others in their workplace, and to manage the challenges of life. So, what are some things we can do to prepare the young people in our programs for the future? This webinar will provide strategies to implement right away and ideas for building staff confidence and competence in SEL.

SKILL

Modelling Engineering Practices


Frontline staff and volunteers will facilitate STEM learning experiences for youth to engage in engineering practices, including defining the problem, design a solution, testing, responding to failure, and optimization. You'll learn how to identify local engineers to visit your site, like technicians, musical instrument repair specialists, or computer scientists. You'll also learn how to design activities to emphasize effort, attention, practice, and persistence.

WEB LESSON 

Testing-Testing-1-2-3



People who are comfortable with testing and retesting are better equipped for 21st Century STEM work. OST staff and volunteers can intentionally support the testing and retesting phase of science and engineering experiences to nurture this attitude in today’s youth. Learn the basics about testing during an inquiry experience and view examples of testing from OST settings. Try a simple STEM experience that staff can use to introduce the idea of testing variables to children.

Focusing on the "M" in STEM

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, shares best practices for integrating math activities into your program to help improve student outcomes. Resources for finding afterschool math activities are shared. Dr. Frerichs also discusses how to build staff confidence in mathematics.
