Cost | Free
Event Description | Re-live the excitement of cheering on our back to back Stanley Cup Champions by implementing an online, interactive STEM program focusing on real-world application of science, technology, engineering, and math through the exciting game of hockey!
Funded by the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation, the NHL, and NHLPA students and teachers will have access to an online program consisting of 12 learning modules aligned to the NGSS and PA Core Standards.
Each module focuses on the scientific and engineering practices while taking a behind the scenes look of STEM careers and STEM within sports. Concepts include:
- Area and Perimeter
- Phases of Matter
- Kinetic and Potential Energy
- Independent/Dependent Variables
- Quantitative and Qualitative Data
In this session upper elementary and middle school teachers, will each receive their own account to explore the gamified lessons, self grading assessments, offline labs, access to additional math and science resources, and even learn from a sports manager at the Lemieux Sports Complex! Time to collaborate with teachers who have utilized last year and discuss implementation plans with your local school manager will be built in as well; bring lessons plans and class lists if you’d like!
Please bring your laptop or device.
