Science City’s ScienceWise | PBL and Student Research in the Middle School Classroom
September 23 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm$25
Project-based learning and scientific inquiry are the building blocks of creating a lifelong learner. PBL can be incorporated in many ways depending on materials available, class sizes, and current curriculum. Kaitlyn Stoll has been introducing students to PBL through independent science fairs for seven years and has had great success at her local fair and participating here at the Greater Kansas City Science and Engineering Fair.
Learn how she introduces her program to the students, tips and tricks for starting or running your own, how to build community and school support, and how to help motivate your students to complete independent research.
ScienceWISE Professional Development workshops are available to all KC Metro area educators. Workshops are led by local Master Teachers and attendees have the option to earn graduate credit through MidAmerica Nazarene University for an additional fee. Workshops allow educators to dive in to hands-on materials and activities, collaborate with like-minded teachers, and have some fun too!
