Millburn Schools’ Office of Curriculum and Instruction and the Strategic Planning Implementation teams invite all members of the community to a special presentation entitled, An Integrative STEM (iSTEM) Primer, with Chris Anderson on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Millburn Middle School auditorium.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) may be the education buzzword of the decade, so the school district is providing an information session for parents, teachers, and community members to learn more about STEM and what it means for our school district and for our students from an expert in the field.
Anderson’s entertaining, practical and dynamic presentation will introduce participants to current trends, key-players, and issues, as well as seek to develop a common language for engaging in these extremely promising STEM education reforms.
Anderson will examine the role of engineering, inquiry and design-based pedagogy as the Next-Generation Science Standards are unveiled. The information he shares will help to prioritize the emerging implications and specific opportunities that stakeholders in STEM education need to be aware of in order to play an informed role in these reforms.
Anderson is an educational consultant, grant writer, and adjunct professor specializing in integrative-STEM education, and is the Director of NJ iSTEM Initiatives at The College of New Jersey and its Center for Excellence in STEM education.
This presentation is free and open to all.
