Join us for a full day STEM Educator workshop at Robins Air Force Base! Receive a $200 stipend for participation and take home a class set of supplies and equipment from the day’s activities.
Workshop activities will be Project Based Learning STEM focused targeting middle school grade levels 6th to 8th. Activities can be modified by the educator for use with GT programs, upper elementary, and lower high school grades. STEM activities will likely include a mixture of Simple Circuits, Tissue Paper Hot Air Balloons, Tetrahedral Kites, Straw Rockets, Density Challenges, Cyphers, Spy Among Us, and Egg-Drop. If you participated in the 2022 workshop day, there may be a little repeat or overlap of activities.
