Loosen up and let off some STEAM while unpacking the CCSS and the NGSS

Celebrated physicist Richard Feynman once noted, “Scientific creativity is imagination in a straitjacket! Perhaps the arts can loosen that restraint, to the benefit of all”

Come join me for a series of workshops (offered at various locations in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region) in unpacking and aligning to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the Common Core Science Standards (CCSS). Through a hands-on and engaging approach that brings out the creative and artistic passion of the scientist in you and your students, these workshops will help transitioning from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics).

Launched in collaboration with KDSL and Smart Education with Alpha Publishing, this workshop series will empower teachers, curriculum leaders and administrators with the necessary knowledge, understanding and practical classroom ideas in aligning to the standards through an inter-disciplinary “synergestic” approach (Erickson, 2007).
