The Children's Council for ITEEA promotes technology education
in the elementary grades.
Thursday, March 27, 2014 - CC Professional
Development Learning Session
STEAM across the curriculum is a great way to pull the school
and community together to maximize academic learning time and the
kids will love it. Join us for some examples including STEM Street
sponsored by the Air Force Association with fun hands-on activities
like learning math and science with parachutes and rockets.
Come, reinvigorate your existing lessons! Let's practice building
integrated STEM lessons with your current material and discuss
how to increase rigor and evaluate student work.
Using problem solving to address STEM topics in physical fitness,
health, and sports technology, this session will offer numerous
ideas and lessons for elementary teachers. Students love to move
and should better understand the science, technology, engineering,
and mathematics behind their favorite sports and games. This session
will give participants the opportunity to find new ways to integrate
this fun and interactive topic into their classrooms.
The Children Council of the ITEEA (CC) promotes technology education
in the elementary grades. Join us at this annual business meeting
to map out plans for the next year. Regular members and new members
are encouraged to participate.

and discuss materials science, engineering advancements, and tools
which improve structures. The students engineer and build structures
based on their new knowledge.
