We traveled to a new dimension at our 2018 STEM Conference, Heading Into the 1st Dimension: Science and Engineering Practices. This full-day conference included a variety of workshops designed for teachers of grades 3–12 and featuring Dimension 1 of the California Next Generation Science Standards: Science and Engineering Practices (SEPs).

The SEPs emphasize the major practices that scientists and engineers engage in as they investigate the world and design and build systems. The conference sessions focused on engaging, hands-on activities that highlight the implementation of the SEPs in school classrooms. Presented by the Exploratorium’s Teacher Institute and the Institute for Inquiry, this full-day conference featured:

  • a plenary session
  • hands-on workshops featuring activities teachers can use in their classrooms to engage students in the SEPs

Breakfast and lunch were included, and participants now have access to all the conference handouts and activities online. One semester unit of Continuing Education credit was available for an additional fee.
