STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in an integrated, interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
The workshop is designed for teachers who are passionate about taking their science, technology, engineering and mathematics instruction to a whole new level in their classrooms. It aims to develop their analytical and problem-solving abilities. The workshop will feature a daylong, activity-based program for teachers working together in teams on STEM content which is completely aligned with the national science, mathematics and computing curriculum of Pakistan. Teachers will be assessed on their interaction with inquiry-driven activities in STEM modules such as electronics, basic robotics, kinetics and automation, architecture, and mathematics.
Who should attend:
Teachers from private and public schools specialized in teaching science, computing and mathematics courses to grades 1-10.
What to Expect:
Breakdown:The workshop is divided into two sessions. The first two hours will be composed of instruction sessions followed by lunch/prayer break. The remaining two and a half hours will be spent on hands-on activity sessions.
