Feedback form is now closed.
The Eureka! series K-2, is intended to expand opportunities for elementary teachers to explicitly address the nature of science and the work of scientists in their science instruction. Eureka! will help elementary teachers organize science lessons that encourage students’ development of 1) confidence and skills in STEM processes and 2) knowledge and awareness of STEM career fields. In this session, participants will participate in two sample lessons from the book which  guides teachers’ explicit use of trade books to humanize and personalize children’s science learning. The biographical stories of real-world people who pursue science and engineering methods and aspire to make the world a better place are the basis for the lessons.  This understanding of STEM as a human pursuit to understand and manage the quality of life is fundamental to scientific literacy and STEM career aspirations.
