Middle School Teacher Professional Development
February 15 @ 4:15 pm - 7:30 pm
In this Professional Learning Experience (PLE), middle school educators will design and build solutions to several NASA-inspired problem-based challenges. During this PLE, educators will explore NASA design- and inquiry-based resources aligned with VA’s middle school SOLS. There will also be time to work collaboratively to integrate resources into each participant’s curriculum.
All resources will be organized within a LiveBinder for easy access.
Example: NASA’s STEMonstrations are filmed aboard the International SpaceStation (ISS). Astronauts demonstrate science in the reduced gravity environmentof the ISS. In the STEMonstration: Physical and Chemical Changes, astronaut Sultan Alneyadi explains the differences between these two types of changes in matter while demonstrating examples of physical and chemical changes that happen aboard the ISS.
