2021 Workshops

The Art of Data + Design | Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center
Ever wondered how public health officials use data, design, and messaging to protect our communities? Join Discovery Center educators in a virtual, interactive session to explore compelling visuals and data literacy around health and science. You will not only evaluate data and draw conclusions, but create your own public health poster too! By the end of this session, you’ll take away ideas and free resources to adapt this project for your virtual classroom.

Robots in Space | Pacific Science Center
Rover missions to other planets are achievements that combine astronomy, geology and engineering. Explore ways to bring some out-of-this world missions to your classroom in this STEAM experience; you’ll learn how to identify some planets in the night sky, explore some fascinating planetary geology, and dive into a hands-on engineering challenge that exemplifies many aspects of the engineering design process. 

Foley: Using STEAM in Sound | Museum of Pop Culture
Join us for a workshop exploring how real-time sounds can enhance language arts, math, science, and many other subject areas. Participants will learn ways that students can transform household items into realistic sounds! We’ll explore the art of “foley” / sound effects and how it can be integrated into classroom learning, from small warmups to larger-scale projects, with individual students or classroom groups.
