Exploring STEM at Conner Prairie

Free teacher workshop

Another session will be scheduled for September 2017. Date and time to be announced by mid-July.

STEM education gives students an understanding of the world and develops important skills in inquiry and critical thinking. Explore how Conner Prairie’s grounds are full of STEM learning opportunities for your students at a FREE workshop. Workshop participants are also welcome to come at 12:30 pm for a complimentary lunch.

This workshop targets teachers of grades 2-6. Professional Growth Plan points are available.

During this workshop, you can find out how Conner Prairie’s grounds offer experiences that cover many different aspects of STEM. Conner Prairie staff will lead discussions on how to find the natural connections between your curriculum standards, STEM and Conner Prairie. Curriculum ideas such as projects and activities will be presented and handouts will be provided. We will also share information about our exciting new outdoor space – Treetop Outpost.
