Course Description

Curious about STEM + Arts? This interactive learning lab introduces real world applications, principles of problem-based learning, and integration across disciplines, as well as the importance and impact of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) in our daily lives.

Participants will:

  • Learn how to apply problem based learning that integrates STEAM in the classroom

  • Discuss strategies to integrate STEAM in the classroom    

  • Learn how Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics impact our daily lives      

  • Explore STEAM careers                 

This PL will facilitate discussion that helps teachers and instructional leaders understand the fundamentals and instructional strategies for STEAM-centric learning. The instructor will engage participants in grades K-5 problem based model lessons that incorporate the 3-dimensions (science/math disciplinary core ideas, cross-cutting concepts, and science & engineering practices) outlined in the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE). Participants will analyze and reflect on the model lessons, and then use their reflections as a starting point to develop their own STEAM-centric 3-D lessons.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CANCELLATION POLICY BEFORE YOU REGISTER!

Metro RESA makes every effort to provide high quality professional learning experiences at low costs to teachers in the Metro Atlanta area. Because we often have to pay instructors, rental fees for locations, and for materials, we must make decisions at least two weeks in advance about cancellation of classes when we do not have enough registrants.

Therefore, our cancellation/no show policy is as follows:

  • If you choose PERSONAL PAY as your payment method: You must use a credit card to complete your registration for all classes with Metro RESA.  We will happily issue a refund for any class as long as you notify us that you need to cancel AT LEAST TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO THE DATE OF THE CLASS.  You will be refunded via the same method of payment within two business weeks.
  • If you choose SCHOOL PAY as your payment method: Your school will be notified of all no-shows and invoiced for no-shows and/or cancellations made less than two weeks prior to class.  
  • If you choose DISTRICT PAY as your payment method: Your district will be notified of all no-shows and invoiced for no-shows and/or cancellations made less than two weeks prior to class.

THIS POLICY APPLIES TO ALL METRO RESA CLASSES EXCEPT GEORGIA TAPP, ALTERNATIVE CERTIFICATION CLASSES AND ANY TRIPS.

Refunds and reimbursements are not transferable to other classes. Refunds for cancellations (if the participant cancels at least two weeks prior to class OR if Metro RESA cancels the class) will be processed within two business weeks of the date of the course.
