Students get up close with science as part of teacher workshop participation
In December three educators from Cleveland Elementary attended the Winter Teacher Institute hosted by Oklahoma Museum Network funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation. The workshop focused on the forces of flight thanks to a grant from The Boeing Company. As part of completing the workshop, educators would also receive an OMN outreach visit to their school. This Tuesday, March 10, OMN will visit students at Highland Park
Elementary and present Science Circuits.
The layering of learned teaching strategies from the workshop with interactive OMN outreach programs provide teachers and students the opportunity to explore relevant, hands-on learning activities that bolster skills in science, technology, engineering and math. During Science Circuits students focus on the engineering design process to illuminate the electrifying world of simple circuits and experience the transformative power of science exploration. They will investigate and test various methods of energy transfer, complete circuits without wires, and explore forces by designing robots that jitter and shake.
