Join the Event Here at 7PM ET:

How many of your students know that velcro, helmets and wind farms are all inventions inspired by ideas we see in nature? In this last of our three-part “Inspiring Young Scientists” series, world renowned anatomist Dr. Joy Reidenberg, along with Megan Schuknecht from the Biomimicry Institute, will join us to talk about how to engage our students, and get them excited about science and design innovations that were inspired by nature.

Dr. Reidenberg and Megan will join PBS Digital Innovator All Star Sharon Clark to talk about STEAM education, and highlight exciting resources and models that you can immediately implement in your classroom.

PBS will provide a certificate of attendance for each one-hour virtual professional learning event.

Our world changes every day, and with that, our teaching practice does to: there is always more to learn as a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) educator. In this three part series, we’ll look at ways to inspire our young scientists and make concepts such as data and computational thinking engaging! Register for the three part "Live Learning" experience: Inspiring Young Scientists Through STEAM Education.

This virtual professional learning opportunity is powered by OVEE: a shared media viewing experience. Created by ITVS and funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), OVEE combines quality HD media and live stream content with the community-building conversation of social media in a single-screen experience.

Through OVEE, filmmakers, educators, public media stations and other partners create online screenings that bring together fans, students, subject experts and special guests to watch streaming media and chat live in a virtual theater. The OVEE chat enables them to discuss the topic, share resources, and ask questions of panelists and experts featured in the video.
