CCRC/WFRC – Thinking Outside the Cube: Math and Science get the WOW Factor!
May 20, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pmCost: $40
Have dust bunnies become your school age children’s science experiments? Do you struggle with how to incorporate math and science into other learning centers and keep children engaged in the activities? Are your centers suffering from the “ho-hum” syndrome because you are out of ideas? If so, this one’s for you! Engage your mind in a new direction using everyday materials that will excite the children’s natural curiosity…and maybe yours too! Be prepared to have fun as we explore fresh ideas that are quick and easy. This event is designed to provide you the tools you need to leave the kids saying “WOW, this is great!”
After this event, participants will be able to list different fields and subjects of science, describe the Scientific Method, state ways to use play-based investigation to incorporate engineering and technology into activities; design gross motor activities using science or math skills and create engaging math activities to stimulate learning and spark creativity. Participants may want to bring a device with a QR code reader (such as a smart phone or tablet , but this is not required to attend.
In order to earn the CEU certificate, all participants must attend the entire course session, participate in Scientific Method simulation, actively participate in hands on small and large group activities and discussions, and design science and math activities with a team.
