Center for the Advancement of STEM Education (CASE)

Project EarthView began 10 years ago with a single hand-painted 20-foot inflatable globe. The program has reached over 100,000 participants, teaching students about the world, and also emphasizing the need for more geography education. The program has now expanded to include a second 22-foot satellite imaged globe, giant floor maps, and workshops for high school students. 

 The EarthView Floor Map program has just acquired giant floor maps of Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, the Pacific, South America and Massachusetts. These maps are available to borrow - at no cost -  following completion of teacher training through the EarthView Institute. The first Floor Map Teacher Institute will take place on Tuesday December 4th from 7:00 - 9:00 pm and on Tuesday December 18th from 6:00 – 8:00 PM. Participation on both dates of training is a requirement for reserving the maps for your school. 

 The cost of the training is $75, and includes both sessions. For more information and to register, please visit https://microsites.bridgew.edu/earthview/earthview-institute

Engage in Math programs for teachers, students and parents unlock the world of engaging mathematics through creative problem solving, puzzles, and games. While playing games, people of all ages can develop and use more complex levels of reasoning than in any other situation. Explore Engage in Math programs below.  

 

Content Workshops - Engage in Math workshops are focused on giving teachers the tools to help their students develop a deep conceptual understanding of mathematics. In the workshops, teachers explore a variety of Common Core aligned classroom activities to engage all students. They experience the “Standards for Mathematical Practice” and “Mathematical Teaching Practices” in action. Offerings range from short or full day workshops to intensive school-embedded coaching.

Games Teachers Play - Real Games that Build Strong Mathematicians. In this series of workshops, teachers will learn about the power games have to help students think like mathematicians. The Standards for Mathematics Practice are embedded in game play: problem solving, making a plan, perseverance, precision, abstract reasoning, real world scenarios, making use of structure, and so much more! Come play games and discuss student benefits with colleagues from around the region!
