Science+ is a phenomenon-based, hands-on science curriculum designed to engage elementary students in real-world applications. Each module connects to key math, writing, and cyber concepts, and has been mapped to the Next Generation Science Standards, covering all standards for each grade level and reaching all three dimensions.
This workshop will prepare teachers to teach Science+ in their classrooms for the 2020-21 school year. Except as otherwise noted, the Zoom sessions below will meet from 10 - 11:30 am Central each week.
- July 2: Introduction to Science + and NGSS
- July 9: Cyber Connections
- July 16: Engineering Design and Science Writing
- July 23: Breakout Sessions(3rd grade - 10 am; 4th grade - 11 am; 5th grade - 12 pm)
