Workshop: Engaging Children with STEM/Inquiry Based Challenges

Engaging Children with STEM/Inquiry Based Challenges

Woodburn Elementary and the Camas School District invite Woodburn 2nd-5th grade students, parents/guardians and teachers to a STEM based learning and sharing event. Roger Fisher, Enrichment Specialist and Staff Developer for the Evergreen School District will lead a 1-hour model lesson for up to 25 advanced learners. For more than 20 years, Roger has been an independent educational consultant, providing consultation services to school districts and parent groups on topics related to gifted education. His expertise includes curriculum design, creative/analytical thinking, subject integration, and effective instructional models. Roger’s passion is designing integrated learning experiences for children that reflect how children naturally learn.

After the model lesson, teachers and parents will participate in a 1-hour session with Mr. Fisher where they will gain a deeper understanding of inquiry-based teaching strategies, methods for integrating math and science into the learning process and how to utilize technology to maximize learning. The aim of this 2-workshop series is to help teachers learn strategies for designing their own STEM lessons and to help parents continue these learning strategies at home. Onsite childcare will be provided for student participants. In an effort to serve as many teachers and families as possible, we are offering two different sessions.
