STEM WEEK 2018
Based on the success of the program in 2017, Newark STEM Week will be returning for 6th and 7th grade students from June 4 – June 8, 2018. During Newark STEM Week regularly scheduled classes will be replaced by hands-on STEM curriculum developed by leading STEM organizations such as MIT and NASA. Over the five days teachers and students will work in teams to solve real-world problems in a classroom where hands-on experimentation, critical thinking, and collaboration are encouraged and used as teaching techniques to engage and inspire students.
Prior to leading Newark STEM Week, teachers will attend a two-day professional workshop in interdisciplinary STEM curriculum and project-based pedagogy.
