It is time to do school differently.
65% of the jobs today’s students will enter do not yet exist (World Economic Forum), and we carry the sum of human knowledge in our pocket.
We don’t need students who know stuff – we need students who can DO stuff.
And STEM is the best way to create the next generation of changemakers. In this training every teacher in your school will learn…
- Easy things YOU can do to instantly engage your students in STEM & career exploration, that won’t cost you a dime.
- What you need to know about what STEM really is, and why you are making it more difficult than it really is.
- How to turn every lesson in every subject at every grade level into a STEM career lesson. Now. Without extra work.
STEM Training: Mindset, Methodologies, & Manifestation
Part 1: Mindset – 9 to 10:30am
A recent study by Randstad shows that over half of all people surveyed (62%) did not know what STEM stood for. Further, only 16% of American high school seniors are interested in a STEM career, and minorities and women are seriously underrepresented (National Science Foundation). The biggest misconception is that STEM has to be something ’different’ or ‘extra’. It’s not, and Part 1 will show you why.
Part 2: Methodologies – 10:30 to 1pm
As America embarks on a new chapter in education, real learning happens anytime, anywhere, with anyone. Through experiential, practically applied activities and one on one work time, Part 2 will empower teachers with the world’s easiest yet most powerful tools for inquiry-based teaching and learning.
Part 3: Manifestation – 1 to 3pm
STEM professionals enjoy lucrative salaries and plentiful career options. Despite tremendous opportunity, millions of STEM jobs are going unfilled annually. Part 3 will fix the leaky STEM pipeline in your District through a simple and proven system to help every teacher effortlessly turn every lesson into a STEM career lesson.
