They will also take a close look at the standards in their grade band and grade level. We will explore the structure of Advancing STEM kits - the 5E lesson model, the set-up of the Teacher Manual, the online resources, and timing. Finally, we will take a look at the Engineering is Elementary (EiE) Kits to see how they align with the Advancing STEM Kits and Elementary standards. Participants will have an opportunity to see an Advancing STEM Kit and an EiE Kit for their grade level and will learn how to order kits for their classrooms. Please bring a device. For a deeper dive into any of the kits, please sign up for July 27th as well.
