A day of innovative STEM Education: Explore. Invent. Experiment.
Registration for Orlando Share Fair on January 11th, 2014 is now open!
Share Fair is a FREE, two-part event that provides a place for teachers, students and the community to share best practices, emergent strategies, and innovative approaches to delivering 21st Century learning. (And don’t forget – it’s FREE to attend and participants are entered to win amazing prizes and become eligible for innovative education grants from the Morgridge Family Foundation!)
SHARE FAIR Part 1 – “Classroom Intensives”
Thought provoking and highly interactive symposia and professional development workshops to explore the theme of STEM Education: Explore. Invent. Experiment. Classroom Intensives are open to 800 educators primarily from the host city, but attracts nationwide attendance. During Share Fair, attendees participate in 3 Classroom Intensive sessions from 16-20 offered.
Discovery Education will lead a session titled The Model Classroom Experience—a Discovery Education Techbook Lesson from the Perspective of the Student. This session will show participants the power of using a variety of resources that promote full engagement for all students. Attendees will rotate through several learning opportunities around the same content. Then educators will take their “student hats” off and debrief the experience.
SHARE FAIR Part 2 – “STEMosphere”
STEMosphere is a FREE PUBLIC expo of local ed-innovation and creativity and provides the opportunity for educators, kids, and any member of the community to explore, invent and experiment. STEMospheres will host dozens of exhibitors who are tinkerers, inventors, engineers, students, chefs, educators, artists, scientists, and clubs and who will have interactive booths that were hands-on, MINDS-ON (and hands-on too!) adventures for STEMosphere attendees of ALL ages! (Specifically, STEMosphere is targeted at ages 0-100.)
All attendees of Classroom Intensives will have dedicated time at STEMosphere in addition to their PD workshops.
