Southwest Sips and STEM!
STEM clock hours and a meet up at a winery, what’s not to enjoy?
Join us at Windy Hills Winery In Ridgefield, Washington for a fun night of STEM learning — by educators, for educators.
In Paper Circuits Across the Curriculum, you’ll learn how to integrate computer science and engineering mindset concepts across the curriculum with inexpensive materials that can light up your students’ projects – and their imaginations. This session is focused on elementary integration, but the tools and concepts can be integrated at any grade level and are fun for adults, too!
