Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence (AzCASE) — Virtual STEM Workshops at the 2020 Conference

| August 25, 2020
 
Virtual STEM Workshops at the 2020 Conference
Featuring: ‘How to Protect Ourselves from Hazards on Earth and in Space’
 
Instead of the traditional one day, in-person event, the 2020 School’s Out, Make It Count Conference will take place virtually from October 10th – 30th. Join us for live workshops October 17th and 20th and on-demand workshops available through October 30th.
 
The 2020 Conference will feature more than 60 virtual workshops, including seven sessions devoted to STEM learning. One such workshop is How to Protect Ourselves from Hazards on Earth and in Space with Lori Rubino-Hare, Anne Hamlin and Sean Ryan from the Northern Arizona University Center for Science Teaching and Learning.
 
Come play a collaborative game that teaches children grades 3-5 about space hazards. It’s part of a free, NASA-funded, and research-based STEM curriculum for out-of-school time (OST) programs. See how to access three different units designed for grades 3-8 that integrate engineering and planetary science and find out about online support materials designed for and with OST educators.
STEM-based Programs for Families to Do at Home with Their Kids

As Arizona grapples with what going back to school will look like, Phoenix arts and culture centers have found ways to help parents, teachers and students. The Arizona Science Center and Children’s Museum of Phoenix have been closed for months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But that hasn’t stopped the organizations from hosting virtual events and providing resources for projects families can do at home.
Beginner’s Coding Guide
 
Computer programming can be a fun and creative activity. It’s just like playing a game: first, you find out what the game is. Second, learn the rules. Third, find out what tools you may need to play the game. Lastly, playing the game! The AT&T Internet Experts created an interactive learning resource, the Beginner’s Coding Guide that gives educators a resource to introduce the basics of coding on a safe and fun website.
