The Promoting STEM Through Literature workshop is all about using literature to get your students excited about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) by actively involving them in the design thinking process. Develop their inquiry and problem-solving skills, while helping them see that with perseverance, anyone can be innovative and invent new things! We will walk you through a lesson that begins with a reading activity then moves into the design thinking process, focusing on one of the Maker Kit items available for free checkout through your local REMC in Michigan. All of the lessons are available for free, as well.
