Take geometry instruction to the next level using Zometools, a geometric construction set, and origami. Empower students to explore symmetry and discover how nature “chooses” its shapes. Inspire students to seek connections between geometry and art. Come learn from master middle and high school mathematics educator and Einstein Fellow Emeritus, Peg Cagle, how to effectively use both Zometools and origami to take your students on creative learning adventures. Each teacher will receive a Zometools STEAM kit and origami supplies valued at more than $300.
Audience: 4th-12th Grade Teachers
(In order to maximize the impact of this workshop, only educators who work directly with students will be allowed to register and receive a kit. Please contact DaNel Hogan if you would like to attend but are in an administrative role.)

Cost: $75 includes materials, continental breakfast, and lunch.
This workshop is part of the STEMAZing Institute. The STEMAZing Project’s philosophy on teacher professional development is simple: It must be hands-on and engaging – putting the educators in the seat of the students to experience STEM lessons firsthand. It must provide the educators with the equipment and supplies they need to implement the lessons and activities in their classrooms the next day if they choose. It must be facilitated by master educators who have themselves been in the classroom.
