Looking to delve deeper into content aligned to the Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards? Our STEM Intensives will do the trick: They’re a sequence of three facilitated workshops, two in the classroom with a field trip to the Bay Area Discovery Museum in between. Plus, every student goes home with a coupon for discounted admission for a future museum visit.
STEM Intensive Topics
STEM Intensives include:
Fairy Tale Engineering (Grades TK – 3)
Engineers engage directly with the design thinking process as they work collaboratively to solve problems for beloved fairy tale characters. The STEM Intensive includes a deeper exploration of the iterative design process.
NEW: Push, Pull, Crash! (Grades Pre-K – 1)
Scientists experiment with push and pull to cause and avoid collisions, create art, and engage in exploration of the powers of force and friction. The STEM Intensive includes a deeper exploration of push, pull and friction with engineering and art integration.
Ten in My Toolbox (Grades K – 1)
Mathematicians engage with a rich variety of activities to strengthen their understanding of the composition and decomposition of the number 10. The STEM Intensive includes further integration of math literature, art, and movement activities.
STEM Intensives take place at the museum and in your classroom.
