During the week of June 10th, fifty teachers from across the state spent an incredible five days at EdVenture, with guest presenters that included: Steve Davee, Jane Roberts, Liz Thompson, Jim Lane, Robb Lane, Ed Dickey, and Crystal Ball O'Connor. As shared by one of the partipants, "This week has been amazing!! I wish every professional development could be as fulfilling and engaging as this one has been! I am so energized and excited about the changes that are taking place in education and I feel better equipped to implement them."
Next on our agenda is our hosting our Celebrating 20 Years of STEM Reform. This event is part of our series of monthly STEM Conversations: Making Connections, events and will be held on Thursday, September 12 with three exciting events in one from 11:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Tickets are available for only $20 for each using our online registration (go to http://www.edventure.org/educators.aspx).
EdVenture, with support from the South Carolina Mathematics and Science Partnership grant, is is proud of its eight years of Hands-On, Minds-On! (HMO) Institute for Teachers. The Hands-On, Minds-On! experience has offered over 1000 elementary classroom teachers professional development designed to build their confidence about science and mathematics, spark their (and their students’) curiosity, while providing tools for understanding the concepts of curriculum integration.
