Webinar: Leading STEM Design Challenges Remotely

Looking for fun, hands-on STEM lessons that support middle schoolers in planning, building, and testing their own designs? Join ExpandED Schools for an exciting workshop exploring design-based learning, the engineering design process, and strategies to get kids moving, thinking and building during STEM activities in afterschool. Participants will leave with over 60 design challenge lesson plans that connect school-day science content with youth development practices, useful strategies to improve the quality of STEM instruction, and handy materials lists that make sourcing STEM supplies less challenging. Ready, set, engineer! Note: These design challenge activities are intended for middle school students. However, some may be modified to serve a broader audience.
