Upcoming Events, Trainings and Recognition

Free elementary science workshops being offered via Zoom in June, July

Two free online science professional development opportunities are available for educators this summer. 

Participants of Picture Perfect Science will learn from award-winning NSTA Press authors Karen Ansberry and Emily Morgan. This introductory workshop, held via Zoom, will help educators build a solid understanding of STEM and literacy integration and the 5E Model through participation in engaging picture book-inspired lessons, lively discussion and interactive learning tasks. 

The first 50 registrants will receive a free copy of the supporting materials book. 

Phenomenon Science is for elementary teachers who want to incorporate more hands-on science investigations and phenomena into their classes. This session is being offered for free through a partnership between the Kansas State Department of Education and Phenomenon Science. During this workshop, which is being held via Zoom, participants will learn more about three-dimensional science standards and experience how phenomenon and student curiosity can drive learning in multiple areas. 

The first 60 registrants will receive a free kit of materials. 

Zoom links will be provided upon registration.
