STEM to the Rescue: An ISTE Pre-Conference Workshop

Posted by SM Bruner on

Join BrainPOP’s Kari Stubbs, PhD and Adina Popa (Steuart Weller Elementary School, VA) at their June 27th ISTE pre-conference workshop and discover how the development of a public service announcement can bolster interest in STEM subjects.

As an attendee, you’ll put your creativity and communication, collaboration, and problem-solving skills to work as you develop a “PSA” to raise awareness about endangered habitats. Fractions, decimals, and algebra will come into play as well when you compose the PSA’s musical score. Then, experience the impact a PSA learning journey can have as we share classroom success stories from Loudon County, VA. Get great tips for integrating BrainPOP and a variety of tech applications from MovieMaker and Finale Notepad to Audacity, and Microsoft Paint. You’ll leave with ready-to-implement ideas and templates that will make all the difference for your students.

All attendees take home a 12-month BrainPOP subscription for the teacher of their choice, plus, we’ll raffle off an iPad at the end of the session.

Registration is required; if you haven’t already done so, please sign up today!
