STEM Boot Camp Project Model – Teams work during the week on a STEM classroom activity. The final inquiry projects are taken on the floor to share with ASC visitors using the skills and strategies of informal science to invite engagement and curiosity about science.
What do teachers say about STEM Boot Camp?
I have been quite the go to guru this year with all my newfound activities and ideas I learned at STEM Boot Camp. I've let my principal and colleagues know that they should definitely attend if they can. Carlton Odom, Fifth Grade Science Teacher, Cheatham County Schools
