Embedded and immersive engineering
Date: Tuesday, November 11
Time: 3 p.m. ET
In this session, you’ll discover how engineering is seamlessly integrated into the Amplify Science curriculum across grades K–8. Join the curriculum designers from University of California, Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science to experience their cutting-edge approach to engineering and its connections to the NGSS.
Lead with phenomena and the three dimensions will follow
Date: Tuesday, December 10
Time: 3 p.m. ET
Explore how instructional sequences designed around real-world problems can lead students to figure out phenomena using the three dimensions of science and engineering. Leaders from University of California, Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science will deliver this interactive presentation to showcase an example from the Hall’s research-based pedagogy and curriculum.
About Amplify Science:
Amplify Science, the only middle school program rated all green by EdReports, blends hands-on investigations, literacy-rich activities, and interactive digital tools to empower students to think, read, write, and argue like real scientists and engineers. Each unit of Amplify Science engages students in a relevant, real-world problem where they investigate scientific phenomena, engage in collaboration and discussion, and develop models or explanations in order to arrive at solutions.
Amplify Science has been proven effective and is grounded in research conducted by the science education experts at the University of California, Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science and on the digital learning team at Amplify. Together, this team developed the research-based Do, Talk, Read, Write, Visualize approach—an approach that presents students with multiple modalities through which to explore the curriculum, and reflects state-of-the-art practices in science teaching and learning.
