How can the arts and digital technologies encourage elementary and middle school students to consider STEM career pathways? Join our discussion and meet experts, STEAM career professionals, and other teachers. Extend your personal learning network and consider how topics surrounding space weather and Heliophysics could assist students in taking on the role of a STEAM career professional. Provide your students the opportunity to participate in a real NASA launch event, taking on STEAM career roles as a scientist, engineer, journalist, or artist. As students MAKE learning artifacts related to their chosen STEAM career field, students SHARE to a larger community via the 5E instructional model and project based learning to promote NASA’s Multiscale Magnetosphere Mission Launch event, set for March 2015.
Examples of student productions include 3D and 2D fabrication models, game simulations, Space Weather Action Centers, blogs, Digital Art, videos of student led Science Lab experiments related to topics surrounding the mission, and the list goes on.
Are you new to topics surrounding space weather? Sign up for a 4 week MiniMOOC course on Space Weather and topics surrounding NASA’s MMS Mission to be held in February via Canvas Open Network. Detailed instructions on how to participate in the MiniMOOC and social activities will be shared on Monday via the Google Hangout.
