Event description

Description

Biochemistry in Elementary STEM: Modeling Strategies for Grades K-5

Led by​: Daniel Fried

In this introductory workshop, participants will become familiarized with foundational chemistry topics like how to use the periodic table to predict atomic properties, how to easily model chemical bonding for students, and how to interpret chemical structures to find their function. The goal of the workshop is to provide elementary school teachers with exciting, age-appropriate tools to connect foundational concepts in chemistry to the worlds of biology, materials science, and environmental science.

The workshop will include animated visualizations, tactile and kinesthetic model building activities, and introduces PyMol, a free molecular modeling software, which can be used to model the 3D structures of enzymes, DNA, and RNA. Activities will build teacher confidence in chemistry, and will be highly engaging to your students. To learn more about this methodology, visit the project website, where you can see videos of the classes in action: https://biochemistryliteracyforkids.com/


*Note, this workshop requires a minimum number of participants. In the event there are not enough participants, the workshop will be cancelled, and a refund will be issued.

$19.99 (Limited # of tickets!)

I am interested in taking more than one workshop. Can I register for multiple workshops?

It depends: Many workshops overlap so look closely at the start and end dates. Be sure to choose workshops that do not overlap, as reservations are not refundable. If you need help deciding which workshop fits your needs best, please email Chris (chris@STEMteachersNYC.org).

Is the full workshop fee or the balance of the workshop fee refundable?

Refunds for the balance of the full workshop fee (that is, the full fee minus the reservation fee) must be requested within one (1) week of payment and at least four (4) weeks before the start of the workshop. All such requests must be accompanied by an acceptable, documented explanation. Judgments about acceptability of explanations and documentation, and about whether or not a refund will be issued are at the sole discretion of STEMteachersNYC and are final. Refunds will not include fees charged on the initial payment by Eventbrite, credit cards, and/or banks.

The name on the reservation/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

No, please contact the STEMteachersNYC Registrar (Registration@STEMteachersNYC.org) to address this.

Please note: We take photographs and record video of our workshops in order to publicize a positive image of science teaching, and of STEMteachersNYC - a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. If you register, you are agreeing to be photographed and to have your voice and image video-recorded. You are also agreeing to relinquish all your rights to the photographs and video recordings.
