PDS Presents: From STEM to STEAM and Beyond

  • Poughkeepsie Day School 260 Boardman Road Poughkeepsie, NY 12603 USA (map)

We are proud to co-sponsor an upcoming educators conference with our friends from Poughkeepsie Day School on Friday, February 14th.

PDS Presents: From STEM to STEAM and Beyond

Design to think. Think to make. Make to Learn.

Join nationally renowned educators Pam Moran and Ira Socol and K-12 teachers and administrators from the Hudson Valley and beyond to explore design thinking as a catalyst for inventing (making!) in the classroom and building fluid connections across the curriculum. How can we create the schools our students need to thrive now and develop the lifelong competencies they need?

This interactive all-day conference will focus on various themes, including:

  • Design thinking for educators: Identifying problems and finding solutions
  • Curriculum design in the age of the common core and test obsession: Going beyond disciplines and boundaries
  • The critical role of classroom space and the learning environment (and how to transform your own without professional design services)
  • Creating interdisciplinary connections in a STEAM partnership exercise

Register to attend and/or submit a speaker proposal today!

Presented by Poughkeepsie Day School in association with Blue School, NYSAIS and the Independent Curriculum Group.
