Learn how to make science fun for your students and effective in helping them master academic standards in both science and language arts! Participants will learn new ways to integrate language arts and science in classrooms with limited time and resources, how to effectively and creatively use tablet computer technology, and how to apply "real world" engineering and technology standards to the science curriculum. Indiana University faculty will present in-depth science content, provide practice using an inquiry-based approach for teaching science process skills, and help participants plan units for next year. Other benefits include free resource materials for your classroom, a 20% discount in the WonderLab gift store during the Institute, free group visit field trip to WonderLab for up to 25 students (or 25 free admission passes), and optional 3 hours IU graduate credit with partial tuition support (forms required).
