Integrating hands-on science experiments and technology into elementary and middle school classrooms helps students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills, while deepening their understanding of science concepts.
It doesn’t have to be challenging to incorporate technology into your science lessons, even when faced with time and resource constraints.
In this edWebinar, join Nüsret Hisim, Educational Technology Specialist at Vernier Software & Technology and former science teacher, as he explores fun and exciting ways to bring hands-on science experiments using probeware to your classroom. Nüsret will highlight:
- The impact of a hands-on approach using real-time data collection on student understanding
- Pedagogical methods and cognitive teaching strategies
- How to find resources that align to national and state standards
This edWebinar will be of interest to elementary through middle school teachers and school and district leaders. There will be time to get your questions answered after the presentation.
About the Presenters
After receiving his BS in secondary science education from the University of Maryland, Nüsret Hisim taught chemistry and physics in Frederick County, Maryland, for 34 years. Nüsret received a Presidential Award for Science in 1991, and he has been certified by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards in secondary science. For over 30 years, he taught using Vernier technology and helped many other teachers integrate Vernier technology into their curricula.
Since the early 1990s, Nüsret sponsored a chemistry club at his school where students brought science-related activities and demonstrations out to the community. He’s also worked with numerous elementary and middle school teachers on STEM-related activities and workshops. Nüsret can be found volunteering at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry or enjoying the coffee scene in Portland.
