Design-Make-Play STEM Institute: Amazing Animals Adaptions

A Workshop With Backyard Brains 

Loading Events

Join us for a professional development course on Election Day and learn how an innovative pedagogical approach called Design, Make, Play can help you engage your students in STEM learning. The Design, Make, Play approach fosters problem solving and critical thinking skills with inquiry-based experiences that are student driven and lead to materials literacy, divergent solutions, meaningful reflection and creative collaboration.

During the Amazing Animal Adaptation Course, participants will learn how to incorporate playful and interactive activities for early elementary students that demonstrate animal adaptations across various biomes. Participants will learn how to utilize designing and making strategies that investigate the differences in animals including predator/prey relationships and how animals are adapted to survive in the environments that they live in. Connections will be made to Common Core and NYC Science Scope and Sequence.

Designed for educators who teach grades K-4, this course reinforces science content, correlates to standards, and strengthens literacy and 21st Century skills.

Recommended for educators who teach grades K-4. This course is CTLE certified. Each participant will receive a one year Educator membership. Lunch will be provided.

Cost: $100
