As we kick off a new, challenging school year, teachers need STEM learning resources that promote SEL, student engagement, collaboration, and are flexible for in-person, hybrid, and virtual learning. As teachers prepare to adapt to new circumstances, we are offering five STEM education webinars that are free of charge to teachers everywhere. Both webinars will showcase unique STEM activities that require no special equipment or background knowledge. They are designed to be flexible while still providing guidance and frameworks. Participants will leave with a sound understanding of how to get their students to view their own environments through the lens of STEM as well as activities that involve critical thinking and teamwork. There are limited spots.
NOTE: The confirmation email that you receive after registering for a webinar will give you access to the zoom meeting. The zoom meeting will unlock on the event page at the start of the session. You can also find the zoom invite by clicking on “view event details” on the event page.

Where’s The Data? – August 26, 4:00pm – 5:00pm CT
For teachers of grades 5-8

Data dominates the media and our lives. Data represents individual numbers or textual expressions to capture some aspect of reality. For example, the list of how many friends you have on social media is a number, which is a type of data. Your social network is a data structure (a structure composed of data and relations). When we want today’s weather, we see a screen that can be encoded as a data structure. This webinar will explore real-world data that students encounter in their everyday lives from three perspectives: a high-level overview of the meaning of data, how data are used within STEM, and how data can drive artists. Participants will receive a pdf of supplementary worksheets on creating one’s own data art and access to short sample videos.

Using Mindfulness to Power STEM Learning – September 1, 4:00pm – 5:00pm CT
For teachers of grades 5-12

Did you know that certain mindful practices can actually boost creativity? Creativity goes beyond the arts and is integral in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) as well. Creativity helps us solve problems and adapt to novel situations. In this webinar, we will walk you through engaging STEM activities that require nothing but a creative and questioning mind. Participants will learn how they can promote mindful creativity during these STEM activities. This webinar will be presented by talkSTEM in partnership with Mastermind Meditate.
