CU Science Discovery’s Teacher Professional Development STEM Workshops are a unique professional development model featuring day-long, activity-based programs for teams composed of a teacher and five students. Teachers and students (grades 4-8) work side-by-side, allowing teachers to observe students’ interaction with inquiry and innovation-driven activities grounded in standards-based content. These workshops feature three interconnected classes on a specific science, engineering or pedagogical theme that:
- Provide a full-day of engaging, hands-on STEM learning and activities
- Share new, standards-based activities, skills and technologies
- Develop inquiry, innovation, engineering design and/or science process skills
- Bring the best of cutting-edge science and pedagogy from the University of Colorado Boulder
- Supply program resources, curricula and CDE/NGSS standards correlations
- Provide a certificate documenting 5 hours of professional development or college/university credit
Each Year CU Science Discovery works with schools, districts, colleges, BOCES and organizations around the state to bring new STEM Workshops to locations across Colorado. This spring we will bring the new STROBE: Light, Energy and Imaging Science Teacher Professional Development STEM Workshop to many of the following areas:
- Sterling, La Junta, Limon and Trinidad
- Denver, Boulder, Longmont and Centennial
- Granby, Steamboat Springs, Glenwood Springs and Salida
- Craig, Basalt, Montrose, Grand Junction and Durango
