WPI STEM Education Center

Exploring Modeling at the EcoTarium

Thursday, April 25, 9:00am-3:30pm
The STEM Education Center at WPI and the EcoTarium have teamed to create this PD that unpacks the second NGSS practice: Developing and Using Models. In the morning, participants will examine a variety of ways to model/represent a phenomenon and engage in a hands-on engineering activity. In the afternoon, participants will explore the planetarium as a model and go on a scavenger hunt to find models in the museum that correlate to their STE standards. Learn more... Registration will open soon, but you can email Donna Taylor at dltaylor@wpi.edu to reserve your spot.
