STEM Educator Workshop

Solar Energy is an important part of our future but what about protection from “Helios”?  This hands-on workshop explores the design, location, and protection of satellites (and their function and use) close to the sun. Activities include building an origami protective shield, a lab to find items that allow safe use of the Sun to keep us warm on Earth and in Space (Mars or the Moon), and how to keep us cool, especially here in the South!  Includes ELA & Art!

Participants will receive a Workshop Completion Certificate that can be used as documentation for your Teacher Professional Goals in STEM/STEAM Professional Learning plus a $25 stipend!
