Description

CEI’s STEM/STEAM workshops for elementary teachers and staff focus on STEM/STEAM basics. Our workshops offer solutions on cultivating student interest and how-to guidance on the use of digital applications to further student inquiry. All workshops include hands-on activities that teachers can take back and introduce to their students. This workshop series is designed to enhance the educational experiences, for students at the elementary grade levels, using the STEAM/STEM fields: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.

Review our training schedule below and register today for sessions offered as a part of this targeted training opportunity for elementary school educators. All workshops include hands-on activities and tools, as well as opportunities for follow-up technical assistance.
