Explore the instructional strategies and practices needed to transform your classroom into an innovative, engaging STEM environment. Learn how to integrate STEM instruction into a K–12 curricula by putting Science, Technology, Engineering and Math into action through inquiry and discovery-based learning. Develop instructional techniques and STEM thinking during our single or multi-day immersive professional development programs. In these workshops, participants explore best practices that encourage students to conceptualize and solve problems using the design process. Discover how to shift from traditional thematic teaching to engaging STEM activities that incorporate scientific literacy skills into authentic problem-solving thematic lessons by participating in activities that focus on higher-order thinking skills. Using the 5E (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate) inquiry model teachers will gain new insights into how to create effective and engaging hands-on classroom experiences.

STEM is not about just teaching about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics; it is a culture that needs to be cultivated to help create a problem solving, creative, critical thinking workforce for tomorrow. During our Professional Development program, BrainStorm STEM Education will expand your thinking to embrace STEM beyond those subjects, and beyond your classrooms walls.

Our professional development program provides:

  • An intense focus on instructional practices to successfully apply a STEM philosophy in their classroom, school, or district.
  • Learn best practices and how to build them into the curriculum to maximize student engagement and achievement.
  • STEM instructional strategies connected to both the NGSS and CCSS standards.
  • Action steps for immediate application of their learning.
  • Classroom and resource management strategies.
