Until recently, we believed that intelligence and creativity were fixed traits. We now know differently. The capacity to learn, solve problems and be creative is hardwired into our brains – we either tap into it and nurture it, or we don’t. Join us for an informative professional development webinar series hosted by Dr. Melissa Hughes, author of "Happy Hour With Einstein", and STEM Fuse, creators of STEM:IT, where we will explore these concepts and how to infuse this knowledge into your classroom curriculum to nurture more active, engaged students.
Part I: "Take Whole Brain Instruction to a Whole New Level"
When: Wednesday, July 19th at 9:00am CT
We'll be exploring the fundamental elements of whole-brain instruction, and how this method engages students with experiential activities that improve cognition, memory, & problem-solving skills - including an introduction to STEM:IT – curriculum-based content with a kinesthetic approach through 3D Printing.
Part II: "Whole Brain Instruction and Project-Based Learning: A Perfect Match"
When: Wednesday, July 26th at 9:00am CT
We'll springboard from a brief summary of tying together whole-brain instruction with curriculum-based content using a kinesthetic approach, then tour the STEM:IT platform, bringing project-based learning experiences to life for students.
Dr. Melissa Hughes is the founder of The Andrick Group and the author of the book, Happy Hour with Einstein. She develops and delivers professional development opportunities for educators across the country based upon whole-brain thinking and learning for deeper cognition and increased student engagement.
About STEM Fuse
STEM Fuse was founded in 2009 with the intention of increasing the number of students obtaining STEM degrees. Their curriculum-based program STEM:IT allows educators to explore K-12 project-based lessons comprised of STEM, coding, 3D design, and interdisciplinary concepts aligned to national and state standards.
