Session Resource Page for:
Low-Tech and No-Tech STEM
November 26, 2019 ♦ 7:00pm - 8:30pm ET
Moderators: Melissa Henning, Kevin Bower and Sharon Hall
Session Description: STEM is a necessary component in all classrooms today. As educators, we need to find ways to reach all students and help them to better understand the topics within STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). In this session we will share a few no-tech and low-tech STEM activities, for those educators with limited tech options or simply looking for a no-tech or low-tech STEM lesson. Management is key in any classroom, but when working in cooperative groups, it is imperative. During the session, we will reflect on the activity suggestions and discuss possible management concerns. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.
As a result of this session teachers will:
- Explore no-tech and low-tech STEM activities;
- Understand the engineering design process; and
- Plan for the integration of no and low-tech STEM activities in the classroom.
