Join us for three days as we explore water, energy, and agriculture challenges specific to Arizona! Using phenomenon to drive student questions about water, energy, and agriculture, making connections using the lenses of the crosscutting concepts, and putting the science and engineering practices together to make sense of the world (or at least what is going on in Arizona). From the science of energy to the complexities of the watershed we live in and the energy and water embedded in our food, learn about both the energy and water systems and how they are inherently connected to food production. Leave with $200 worth of equipment and supplies for classroom use and curriculum to engage your students using the three dimensions of instruction – core ideas, crosscutting concepts, and science and engineering practices.
Audience: 4th-12th Grade Teachers

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.
