Facilitating Science Practices – How can we make sure that our ‘hands on’ science experiences for youth are also ‘minds on?’ In this module, participants learn how to support youth as they engage in science practices to learn science ideas, including planning and conducting investigations around testable questions. They’ll talk about the similarities and differences of questioning in science versus questioning in engineering contexts.
Participants are introduced to approaches for supporting youth as they explore science through a series of connected investigations. They examine the role science practices play in helping youth connect and make sense of their developing science ideas.
*The expectation is that you will be live at all three sessions and an active member of this coaching cohort.
While funding is still available, stipends are offered to participants who complete feedback surveys before and after a module. You do not get a stipend solely for participating. Be sure to check with your coach before you start the course, to see whether you are eligible for a survey-stipend. Stipends are limited and not guaranteed.
