Get ready for EE Week 2014: Engineering a Sustainable World, sponsored by Samsung!Join us for the next installment of our 2013-2014 Greening STEM webinar series.
Engineering activities don’t have to be confined to a computer, workshop or classroom. There are plenty of fun and active ways to learn and experience what engineering can accomplish! In this webinar, presenters will share ideas and resources for projects and activities which engage students in applying STEM – and particularly engineering – skills in the outdoors, whether in the schoolyard or in the field. In this webinar, Susy Ellison will share a high school solar-powered car design project that is sure to get students' minds racing! Then Amanda Gebicki and Alison Reilly will walk us through an innovative elementary playground designed to help students develop STEM skills while learning about the outdoors!
