June 25-29, 2018 the Sternberg Museum is hosting an NSF-sponsored STEM teacher workshop for grades 6-12 teachers. This workshop is a collaboration between the Paleontology Department at the Sternberg Museum and the Science and Mathematic Education Institute at Fort Hays State University.
The goals of the workshop are to:
(1) Introduce teachers to 3D and problem-based learning models to construct effective curricular activities (including the 5E instructional model)
(2) educate the teachers on museum resources available for STEM education, and
(3) help teachers produce classroom materials using specimens and specimen data from the Sternberg Museum collection
