From STEM to STE3M: Incorporating Applied Math and Critical Thinking into STEM Learning - CANCELLED
Participants will learn about economics and ethics through the discussion and analysis of contemporary challenges in energy supply/use. This project-based learning (PBL) oriented workshop will emphasize both the STEM and social dimensions of energy.
The workshop will feature roundtable style discussions with fellow educators about how to best integrate new content into current curricula.
While this workshop uses energy as an example, insights developed can be applied to other social challenges.
