With the advent of COVID-19, remote learning became a necessity. Initially, engineering and CTE-STEM educators were concerned. But what they discovered was that the right virtual environment and digital tools could motivate students to truly design and engineer products in ways that building physical products alone does not. In this edWebinar, you’ll hear from a panel of CTE directors and STEM teachers who will discuss the lessons they learned about remote STEM education and hear their stories and strategies.
The presenters will also discuss ways to use digital components from 3D virtual models through unlimited design iterations through online competitions to engage and motivate students to learn the engineering design process in the most real-world way—exposing even the most reluctant students to STEM careers.
This edWebinar will be of interest to middle and high school teachers and school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
