Standards Implementation Institute Part II: Colorado's Revised Science Standards

About this event

The fall science standards implementation institute is a collaborative effort between the US Air Force Academy STEM Outreach, PALS, Colorado Department of Education (CDE), the Colorado Science Education Network (CSEN), and the Colorado Association of Science Teachers (CAST), D11, EleSTEMary, and additional organizations to support districts, schools, and teachers across the state in their transition to the new Colorado Standards for Science. We are partnering with surrounding districts to support this one-day in-person learning experience at the US Air Force Academy.

At the implementation institute, teachers and educators will deepen their understanding of the new science standards through interactive sessions to learn more about translating the standards for classroom instruction. Participants can join two sessions (one morning, one afternoon) each one tailored to support diverse learning needs. Here is a draft of the agenda for the day:

  • 7:45 am - Check-in
  • 8:10 am - Welcome by Col. Chris McClaernon, USAFA
  • 8:25 am - Chemistry Demonstrations - Stacey Lazelle and Dr. Ron Furstenau, USAFA
  • 9:00- 11:45 am - Morning Session - Read Session Descriptions Here
  • 11:45-12:25 pm- Bring your own Lunch!

  • 3:15-3:30 pm - Closing Remarks
  • 3:45- 4:45 pm- Planetarium Show (Optional)

Participating educators will be eligible to receive up to 8 hours towards recertification, and have the opportunity to network with peers and gain resources to support their work. Educators will need to complete the survey and a learning reflection to receive credit. For questions, please contact, CDE Science Content Specialist, Maya M. Garcia via email at Garcia_Maya@cde.state.co.us.

ADD Note: To minimize the risk of exposure to COVID, masks are required for indoor participation.

Thank you to the USAFA, specifically STEM Outreach Coordinator Sandy Lamb for organizing resources and books for participating K-12 teachers.
