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 on Thursday, April 13, from 1 to 4 pm. Workshop participants are also welcome to come at 12:30 pm for a complimentary lunch.

During this workshop, you can find out how Conner Prairie’s grounds offer experiences that cover many different aspects of STEM. Project-Lead-The-Way Teachers Matt Putman and Christine Floyd will lead discussions on how to find the natural connections between your curriculum standards, STEM and Conner Prairie.
