With a focus on paper circuits as a tool for engaging students with the science and engineering practices, we will explore the various ways you can use paper circuits to bring engineering design challenges to life in your classroom. The book Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters by Andrea Beaty will also be highlighted as a resource for developing engineering design challenges. What is a valve? Where do we find them in nature and in the engineered world we live in? Educators will take home a STEMAZing Kit of books/equipment/supplies worth nearly $150 so they can immediately engage their students back in the classroom.
Audience: Teachers attending the Arizona STEM Adventure with their students from grades 4-8 and other educators who are invited by the organizers.

This is a STEMAZing Workshop. 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.
The Pima County School Superintendent's Office and its partners often take photographs and videos during events and workshops as they occur.
