About the event
STEMteachersPHX is hosting a Physics Saturday Session on October 21 from 10 AM to 1 PM! http://stemteachersphx.org/events
- Do you ever wish your professional development applied directly to what you're doing in class?
- That it gave you ideas and activities you could immediately implement in your classroom?
- That you were with other teachers willing to share what works in their classroom and help brainstorm solutions for challenges in your class?
- That all this was so inexpensive that you could easily ask for funds from your principal or just pay for it out of pocket?
Good news everyone! STEMteachersPHX is hosting a Physics session for only $12! Yes, your school can pay for your session! Contact us for our Tax ID number. Join us at our event this Saturday! For this session we have scoured our membership for teachers who have creative and interactive ways to teach physics concepts appropriate for your class.
Take a look at what is being offered at each level:
Upper High School: In the Mission to Mars session, award winning teacher Mike Vargas will be presenting an introduction to Spheros. Spheros are tiny, app-enabled robotic balls. His lesson will be a blend of physics, robotics, and coding in a simulated Mars mission!
High School : This session will not only lead you through a constant acceleration lesson that you can immediately use in your classroom, but we will also discuss how to build your own kits for the activity. This fun interactive lab will demonstrate the concept to your students in simple terms making physics accessible to all.
Middle School: Broom-Ball is an exciting way to teach your students about forces and motion! Take this fun, interactive activity back to your classroom to help students observe and participate in the transfer of energy as they apply forces to make a mass change speed and direction.
Elementary School: Fly through the Air with the Greatest of Ease to learn about Position, Motion, and Forces! This session uses hands on activities to engage your students and help them understand spatial relationships, how objects move, and how forces can influence motion. This session is designed specifically for K-1 and 5th grade science standards. However, These activities are also a great way to encourage all elementary students to make connections between the real world concepts they are graphing and understanding their position on a number line or graph!
See you Saturday, October 21 at Arizona School for The Arts. 1410 North 3rd Street http://stemteachersphx.org/events
Hope to see you there!
