Description

Project Cornerstone is offering a workshop for middle school and elementary teachers on the science and economics of the natural resources used in producing concrete. This workshop will provide rock solid tools and hands-on activities to implement in the classroom that will keep students engaged and excited about learning science, technology, engineering, math (STEM), history and economics.

The workshop will:

  • Illustrate how concrete has been used by civilizations, like the ancient Romans,
  • Introduce an innovative trade activity,
  • Present hands-on activities that will feature:
    - testing a hypothesis
    - applying ratio concepts
    - creating customized concrete projects.

The workshop is ideal for history, science and math teachers to collaborate and offer a fun and exciting learning opportunity for students. Information and activities provided are easily applied in the classroom. They provide a fun and interactive way to apply economic principals, Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), and STEM into classroom learning.

Teachers will receive:

  • Lunch
  • Sieve Analysis Starter Kit
  • Science of Concrete Kit
