Professional Development


November 8, 2017 ...... 4:30-6pm

@ Linmoor Education Center (2001 Hamilton Ave)

The Energy Bike is designed to demonstrate the fundamental concepts of electricity, including current, voltage, wattage, resistance, capacitance, and power. Students take active roles in pedaling the bike to produce electricity for different explorations.

The bike is perfect for 4th and 7th grade science standards, but many elementary schools like to use it for nighttime events. A training is needed to reserve and check out the Energy Bike.

Picture Perfect Science has created 2 new resources:

Picture Perfect STEM K-2 and Picture Perfect STEM 3-5

Come engage in 5E lessons from the new resource books. Don't let the word STEM scare you off. The new lessons embed even more reading-comprehension strategies that integrate STEM subjects & ELA through high quality picture books. The lessons will lead your students to ask questions and define problems; obtain, evaluate, and communicate information; and engage in argument from evidence.

Participants will leave with 1 of the new resource books.
