This hands-on workshop empowers you to implement Kagan Structures to release and channel student curiosity, creating life-long learners with a love for science. Make your curriculum come alive as your students acquire STEM—science, technology, engineering and mathematics—knowledge and skills by manipulating, exploring, and experimenting with real objects. STEM is an interdisciplinary and applied approach integrating the four disciplines into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications. You will work cooperatively to develop your STEM practices and thinking using Kagan Structures. Students must do science in order to learn the skills needed in today’s technologically advanced world. More importantly, students must do science together! Scientists do not work in isolation. While working cooperatively, building and calculating, coding and creating, your students will gain a greater depth of understanding of real-world science and science applications. WS# 33759
