Join this “hands on” workshop and learn how to implement STEM instruction in the Chemistry classroom. Our present and future lives are dependent upon making America more competitive by training a STEM-educated work force. Presently, the STEM subjects are usually taught independently of each other. STEM Instruction must be cross-curricular and make use of 21st Century Skills and Technology. Most teachers have little difficulty integrating science, mathematics, and technology into their courses. The difficult piece of the puzzle is engineering. Many teachers misunderstand and fear engineering. This workshop focuses on Engineering Design-one of the NGSS Science and Engineering Practices. The goal of this workshop is to ease teachers’ concerns by their participation in a “hands on” STEM activity to understand how a colorimeter works and to design and use a simple colorimeter. Spectrophotometry is one of the areas now being emphasized in the AP Chemistry Curriculum. Handouts will be provided.
