The Center for Learning with Nature, a non-profit devoted to helping teachers integrate Nature-oriented innovation and STEM learning into their classrooms, is looking for 4th and 5th grade teachers interested in piloting the new Engineering Inspired by Nature kit.
Would you like to try out a new engineering kit with your students? The kit is called "Engineering Inspired by Nature" and is based on an award-winning curriculum of the same name, produced by The Center for Learning with Nature (www.LearningWithNature.org). The Center for Learning with Nature is a non-profit organization devoted to helping teachers integrate Nature-oriented innovation and STEM learning into their classrooms.
On May 10, at Marietta High School from 6-8 pm in the cafeteria area, they are having their “Marietta City Schools Engineering Pipeline Research Symposium.” They would love for you to come, set up a table, and represent your organization. (If you teach with Cobb County, they’d love to have you come and support the event!)
Projects from Lockheed Elementary will include composting, vermicomposting, classroom aquaponics, and a sustainable, portable off-the-grid tiny house powered by solar energy built by multiple grade levels that ties into various science, math, and SS standards. Other elementary schools, Marietta Middle, and Marietta High will have exciting projects and research to present as well.
Additionally, a VR/AR/3D bus will provide in-house field trips so students can experience learning in an engaging way. Please let me know if you will be able to join us as a visitor or at a table representing your organization.
June 25 - June 29, 2018

Designed for rising 4th, 5th, and 6th grade girls who have an interest in science and engineering. This five day camp will offer students the opportunity to explore an array of science and engineering fields including Forensics, Chemistry, Engineering, and Genetics. During the camp students will attend small group application-based workshops in each of these areas.
