K-12 Professional Development in STEM / NGSS Integrated Science through Aquaponics

24 Apr 2019 4:33 PM | Anonymous member

The Concord Regional Diploma Academy is offering a 3-day summer workshop to equip teachers to explore Next Generation Science Standards and integrate STEM content through a long-term classroom project.  Participants will work together to assemble an aquaponics classroom kit and process a set of prepared lesson plans. Distinct guided inquiries are provided for grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12.  The lesson plans are provided as Google Docs with full edit rights.  Join us at White Farm in Concord, NH to gain the skills and knowledge required to successfully engage students in project-based learning.  The classroom goal is for students to improve STEM performance through growing a sustainable food product.  Emphasis is also placed on using evidence to support conclusions.  Students will integrate math, biology, chemistry, Earth science, engineering, and physics while discovering the fun and benefits of gardening year-round.
