It has been almost a year since we started offering the entire STEM and robotics community, at least one webinar per month.
It has been challenging and motivating to find remarkable speakers and to design, with them, relevant content that can help educators to reshape their curriculum and classes with new, exciting ideas and points of view. All of this, during one STEM webinar.
If you missed any of our previous STEM education webinars, you’re more than invited to watch them all, right here.
In the spirit of finding new ways to bring solutions to your classroom, and inspired by conversations with LEGO Education’s friends and with the amazing people within the CoderZ team, we came up with a new, exciting format for a STEM webinar that you will all see on July the 26th at 2pm EST.
This time, we are gathering together 3 of the most amazing STEM educators in the United States, to offer you a unique opportunity to talk with them, to get feedback, and to design better educational programs for the upcoming school year.
This “Ask Me Anything” STEM webinar, will host Dr. Merredith Portsmore (from the TUFTS University), Aaron Maurer, and Gary Garber together in one panel, to talk with you about new ideas, tips, educational trends, and engaging STEM activities for the upcoming school year.
So, you might be wondering who is this for. You have a STEM program but are looking to improve and expand, or maybe you haven’t even started one yet! Either way, this is your opportunity to get answers to all of your burning questions from a panel composed of outstanding educators.
During this occasion, we will be talking about proven and successful teaching methods, best practices for STEM teachers, useful resources for STEM and EdTech educators, innovative tools for your STEM class, engaging STEM classroom activities, and we will provide a relevant academic research to support all of the mentioned items.
For you to meet our panelists for this STEM webinar, we prepared a short bio on each one of them:
Dr. Merredith Portsmore
Dr. Merredith Portsmore is the Director for Tufts Center for Engineering Education and Outreach as well as a Research Assistant Professor at the Center. Her research interests focus on how children engage in designing and constructing solutions to engineering design problems and evaluating students’ design artifacts. Her outreach work focuses on creating resources for K-12 educators to support engineering education in the classroom. She is also the founder of STOMP (stompnetwork.org), LEGOengineering.com (legoengineering.com), and the new Online K-12 Engineering Education program (okee.tufts.edu).
Aaron Maurer is currently serving as STEM Lead for the Mississippi Bend AEA and the Founder of a non profit called 212 STEAM Labs, Inc. Prior to this he served as an Instructional Coach for Bettendorf Middle School. He has been in education for over a decade teaching wide range of subjects including computer science. Aaron is a also a member of the Lego Education Advisory Panel, Microsoft Innovator Educator Expert, and was a finalist for the Iowa Teacher of the Year in 2014. He is an avid fan of STEM, Makerspaces, and Project Based Learning. Watch Aaron’s first webinar with CoderZ, here.
Gary is an instructor of Physics at Boston University Academy, and main coach of the Boston University Robotics Team. Garber has lead over 85 workshops, oral presentations, panel discussions, demonstrations and webinars in the past 20 years. As president of the local section of the American Association of Physics Teachers, he has reorganized and revitalized the section and co-chaired several local physics teaching conferences. Just this year he was awarded the Wendell G. Mohling Outstanding Aerospace Educator Award. Watch Gary’s previous STEM webinars with CoderZ, here.
