Inspiring Young Scientists Through STEAM Education

A three-part professional development series for teachers.

STEAM learning media hero This three-part series is meant to inspire young scientists and make concepts such as data and computational thinking engaging in a "live learning" environment.

Our world changes every day, and with that, our teaching practice does, too. There is always more to learn as a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) educator.

Join us for a three part series where we'll look at ways to inspire our young scientists and make concepts such as data and computational thinking engaging in a "live learning" environment. PBS will provide a certificate of attendance for each one-hour virtual learning event.

Part 1 | Helping Students Interpret Data

March 19 @ 7PM ET

Data, data, data. Data is everywhere! How do we teach students to interpret data? To care about data? About all the cool things that can be done because of data? Look no further. Join us in this LIVE conversation with NASA experts to explore how they brought visualizations of the Earth to the palm of your hands all using, you guessed it, DATA!

Part 2 | Teaching Computational Thinking

March 26 @ 7PM ET

Join in on a live conversation with Josh Caldwell from Code.Org! Josh, a former classroom teacher, is the author of “Creative Coding” and the curriculum lead at Code.Org. This one-hour live learning event will dive into the ways in which you can help students think about computational thinking in artful, creative, digestible and fun ways!

Part 3 | Exploring Models Inspired by Nature

April 2 @ 7PM ET

There are so many innovations and models we use in our day-to-day life that are inspired by nature. How do you incorporate these concepts into your classroom? And how do you get students excited to learn more about it? In this last of our three-part “Inspiring Young Scientists” series, world renowned anatomist, Dr. Joy Reidenberg, and Megan Schuknecht, from the Biomimicry Institute, will join us to present ideas about the science within nature!
