Keverian School Teachers Take Part in Rigorous Professional Development Training
Keverian School teachers are gearing up for the Commonwealth’s 2019 STEM Week by taking part in a rigorous two-day professional development course offered by i2 Learning.
The teachers attended the workshop this week at Everett High. They were trained as a team to implement curriculum for the 2019 Massachusetts STEM Week (October 21-25). All curriculum and materials are provided to participating schools free of charge by i2learning.org
i2 Learning has partnered with over 20 of the world’s leading STEM organizations including MIT and the Museum of Science, Boston to develop immersive, project-based STEM curriculum designed to engage and inspire students in STEM and STEM related fields. During STEM Week, classrooms are transformed into STEM learning labs where i2 courses replace regularly scheduled classes for a full week. Courses are suitable for students of all abilities and backgrounds, and all curriculum maps to the Massachusetts and Next Generation Science Standards.
The goal of STEM Week is to engage students in exciting activities that introduce them to STEM thinking and get them excited about solving problems. Students will be encouraged to:
- Use problem solving tools and skills, such as the engineering design process and the scientific method
- participate in design challenges, experiments, and discussions
- push the boundaries of their thinking
