STEAM & MAKER PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
"Teachers are our heros! Working with fellow educators enhances our shared development."
Our dynamic PD & training sessions are a bit different. We believe the best way to engage with STEAM is to embrace the creative process with inspiring yet concrete experiences. So we focus on hands-on project training in tandem with STEAM & Maker best practices AND practical implementation. These are not "packaged" programs and every workshop is different. We work closely with our partners to customize professional learning experiences to meet specific community needs. Live and web-based workshops include tons of hands-on making, deep discussion, real-world implementation strategies and many tools & resources.

NASA STEAM WORKSHOPS
NASA Education & Engagement Workshops
As curriculum developers for NASA and McREL International, we have trained thousands of teachers from all backgrounds on our exciting NASA programs. We've developed an innovative suite of FREE curriculum and projects which transform space science and engineering discovery through creativity and constructionist practice. During hands-on immersion, our NASA STEAM experiences galvanize learning and leading in new and dynamic ways. Enjoy investigating planetary science, astronomy and cultural sky stories through 2D and mixed-media works. You'll also explore Maker education with a set of engineering projects which build in complexity, igniting "engineering literacy" and design thinking. During our workshops for NASA's MISSIONMakers, you'll receive training on fun projects and activities, tips for practical STEAM practice and many valuable teaching resources to foster curiosity and creativity - in yourself and others.
