Everyday STEM Workshop – Event Overview

Everyday STEM™ is unlike any professional development training you’ve ever attended. This innovative workshop focuses on best practices for student engagement strategies as the learner uses inquiry-based science to explore popular STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) challenges.

This is not a “sit-and-watch” teacher training… this is a “get-up-and-do” learning experience featuring over 30 engaging activities that you can take home and immediately share with your students. You’ll learn the science behind the fun while practicing how to present the science activities in your classroom. Most importantly, you’ll learn how to use Steve Spangler’s unique strategies for turning ordinary activities into practical experiences that teach solid STEM.

TAKE HOME THE TOOLS YOU NEED TO GET STARTED THE VERY NEXT DAY

You will receive a “Survival Kit” filled with gizmos, gadgets, and learning tools that will allow you to practice dozens of amazing and simple science activities with Steve during the workshop. The “Survival Kit” is yours to take home, along with a 65-page activity guide, to help you implement creative science teaching to get your students excited about science.

INTEGRATION IS THE KEY

Steve Spangler’s classroom-tested strategies and top-notch presentation techniques are guaranteed to change the way you think about integrating science into your entire curriculum. This fast-moving seminar is for early childhood, elementary and even middle school teachers who need creative science integration strategies… who are tired of trying to “squeeze” science into their already packed teaching schedule… and who want to make science even more fun and meaningful in their classroom. Stop squeezing and start integrating!

BECOME A MORE CONFIDENT STEM TEACHER

What makes this training experience different? Steve uses a successful model of motivating and teaching with captivating demonstrations and eye-catching learning tools while remaining focused on the real science that is being taught. The inquiry in each exercise prompts students to think more like scientists and to solve challenging problems using the scientific method. Best of all, you’ll leave this experience with the knowledge, presentation skills, strategies, tools and commitment to make science an integral part of your teaching day.

In just one day, you’ll be well on your way to using Steve’s strategies for creating unforgettable learning experiences for your students.

I learned and laughed so much. I wish I had been a part of this workshop 10 years ago. A ‘must-have’ experience for every teacher.

Jeff Cruise – San Antonio, Texas

I am so stoked!!! This is the best seminar I have ever attended. It was insightful, fun, exciting, fun, educational, fun, inspired, fun and did I say fun??? I will take the ‘science torch’ and show other teachers how much ‘fun’ science is and can be. It’s a new way to discover the understanding and exploration of science that you can take to any grade level. Thank you!

The workshop was the best workshop I’ve gone to in nine years! I’m all about making science exciting, hands-on, and fun for kids! Steve makes it so easy to do. I have gone back and done quite a few of the experiments from the workshop–my class LOVED all of them!Nothing like seeing those HUGE eyes and excitement on their faces. Thank you for a wonderful workshop.

I attended the Science Boot Camp in Tampa and it was fantastic. I have been to many workshops over the years and have been disappointed in some of them. This training was a lot of fun and gave valuable ideas that I can use in my classroom immediately. Steve, as well as the people assisting him, was very personable, friendly and helpful. I can’t wait to start using these demonstrations for investigations with my Kindergarten students. The two other teachers from my school were very excited about the information as I am. I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone.
