SIEMEN”S  STEM WEBINAR ARCHIVES   ( lower right corner of page)

If the night time sky is not what you are looking for, you can find other quality archived presentations on the Siemens resource site that may fit your current class topic better.  Each archived webinar includes downloadable lesson support. This Resource is a great way to connect your students to the real world scientists of today.

February Live Stream – Getting to the Root of the Issue

Join the Discovery Education Science Techbook team for a live broadcast series called  Science Live Streams.  This month, we’ll be coming live from Bay Lane Middle School in Muskego, Wisconsin.  
Join in and see how  21st Century Science encourages active learning.  Hands on labs often feature elements of mathematics concepts that can help bridge student understanding.

Are you interested in discussing cross-curricular alignment between Science, technology and Mathematics while meeting the expectations of Common Core? Come discuss strategies for integrating technology while meeting curricular needs effectively.  

All Grade 5 -12 Teachers and curriculum coordinators are invited to join in our WI DEN Google Hangout Event!  Register Here!
