Our Microsoft Education team is excited to share that four major Hacking STEM Summer Workshops have been added to our program, just before you head back to school in the United States. New locations include Los Angeles, Houston, Fort Lauderdale and New York.
Overview of the professional development workshop
The two-day professional development workshop is designed to provide a dynamic hands-on learning experience for educators. The goal is to equip both professional development providers and teachers with tools and techniques that they can immediately use to modernize and enhance their own curriculum, and to prepare professional development providers for sharing Hacking STEM with other teachers. The workshop aims to provide learning experiences that will prepare educators with the skills to leverage Microsoft technology and positively impact student learning.
The Hacking STEM professional development workshop engages teachers in a project based, collaborative learning environment. Educators are encouraged to approach STEM education and data science in an authentic, real-world context.
During the workshop, participants become students and proceed through the Hacking STEM lessons by engaging in scientific inquiry and engineering design. Science, engineering and math concepts are brought to life with live Excel data, visualized from scientific instruments constructed by participants from everyday materials. Participants gain the necessary skills to deliver this content in their own context. They also have the opportunity to develop a plan for organizing their respective classrooms to effectively implement STEM experiences.
