NGSS in Action: Food for Thought -- What Fuels Us?
Saturday, April 18, 2015 from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM (CDT)
Join us for a hands-on, inquiry-based workshop investigating the Next Generation Science Standards; the complex relationships among food, feedback, hormones, and health; and the power of collaborative problem-solving!
Breakfast and Check-in will be from 8:30 to 9:00 AM. Lunch will be provided. Participants will receive 6 CPDUs.
This workshop engages participants in hands-on, collaborative-inquiry activities including: Why is glucose important for the body and brain? How are glucose levels regulated in the body? How does adrenalin affect the body and the brain? How does glucose affect memory in aging populations? How does glucose dysregulation lead to disease? Participants explore how these investigations connect to various disciplines and exemplify the NGSS and Common Core.
The mission of the iBIO Institute’s EDUCATE Center is to deliver industry-led Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programs for teachers and students thereby inspiring the next generation of innovators and helping to restore America’s leadership in STEM education.
