Middle School Scientific and Engineering Practices

Complete Attendance not available before workshop starts.

By September the new science TEKS for 6-8 will be adopted. These new standards affect the middle school curriculum both in concepts (more vertically aligned) and thinking. One of the biggest changes to the new TEKS is the move to scientific and engineering practices. These standards are designed to help students make connections between science and engineering, and engage in the practice of investigating and designing in order to answer questions and solve problems. This TWO-DAY workshop is designed to increase student exploration and promote hands-on experiences as opposed to only following a prescriptive process. During these two days, we will learn about the new TEKS and walk through several experiences that focus on designing labs and solutions, analyzing and interpreting data, and developing evidence-based explanations and solutions. You will leave with resources that target the development of these scientific and engineering thinking skills throughout the school year.
