Remote FieldSTEM and Schoolyard Investigations for Kindergarten through 3rd Grade

(private event for Cascade, Ellensburg, and Thorp School Districts)

Attention Formal K-3 Educators

Join Pacific Education Institute’s Megan Rivard for this three hour online Zoom workshop introducing Remote FieldSTEM and Schoolyard Field Investigations for kindergarten through third grade educators. FieldSTEM is an integrated framework that facilitates career-connected, locally-relevant, field-based learning. 

In this primer, participants will learn how simple field investigations can be incorporated into current science units to provide students with contextually-relevant science skills and practices. We will also be providing support for adapting FieldSTEM resources to the distance learning context.

Participants will:

  • Experience FieldSTEM student management strategies

  • Learn about the NGSS Science and Engineering Practices and what they look like in practice

  • Receive mentored time to work on field investigation development and planning time with already created schoolyard investigations

Participants who attend will receive:

  • Access to a schoolyard field investigation for their grade level

  • 3 Washington State approved STEM clock hours 

  • A $75 implementation stipend (details provided at workshop)
