Join Us! Webinar and Discussion About STEM In Elementary Grades

By giving our kids the tools they need to succeed in STEM, we are giving them a huge leg up as they enter the job market. But when we think STEM, we often think of middle school and high school, robotics and chemistry—not first graders and the sand table. While any exposure to STEM is good, research studies show that kids who experience STEM early through hands-on learning are the ones who will be best equipped to develop a strong understanding of STEM concepts as they get older. Join the TSIN for a statewide webinar and discussion focused on integrating STEM in the early grades. The discussion will be lead by Principal Catherine Jones from Prescott South Elementary in Cookeville, TN.

Date: October 1
Time: 2pm Central, 3pm Eastern

    Will the webinar be archived on your site for future reference? I will need to leave before the end of the meeting and hate to miss anything.

      Hi Suzanne,
      This is the first time we have used this Webinar software, but it does have the ability to record and I am going to do my best to make that happen! I will post it in the “tools and resources” section of our website as soon as I am able. Thank you!

      • Dear Gretchen,

        Thank you for trying. I’ll keep a lookout for it. The activities I saw were awesome and I’ve already talked to my principal and some of the teachers about them.

        • I saw the archived webinar today and was able to catch the part at the end that I had missed the day of the original session. I am very excited about the possibilities of STEM in elementary schools and want to look into the EIE curriculum and other resources. Thanks again for providing the recorded session and I look forward to next month’s workshop. 🙂
