About this event

It is important for all students, no matter what their future education and career path, to engage in innovative and integrated STEM experiences. However, while chemistry is often referred to as “the central science”, most students experience it as one of their many subject-specific courses in their schedules. In this learning experience, educators will look at how inquiry-based activities can be used as a tool for integrating content across multiple disciplines. While the lessons in this learning experience are designed for a high school chemistry class, the activities can be adapted for other courses. Learning outcomes include: - Engaging in different inquiry-based chemistry activities that integrate physical and life science concepts - Identifying the focus and analyzing the structure of integrated STEM activities - Reflecting on how to engage students in real-world applications of scientific concepts such as solution concentration and gas laws - Applying strategies for creating integrative science learning experiences
