Wednesday, June 5, 2019 | 7-8 pm ET
FREE for NAEA Members; $49 for non-members
Science, technology, engineering, art, and math—knowledge in these fields will take our students far. And, the ways to give them this knowledge can be engaging and fun! Join STEAM specialist and educator Tim Needles as he shares creative lessons and approaches for every experience and education level when incorporating STEAM in the art room. This webinar will outline the fundamentals of STEAM and share a variety of technologies and concepts from old school ideas—light painting, upcycling, and cardboard—to emerging technologies such as digital drawing, 3D printing, augmented reality, coding, and robotics. Learn about the various ways STEAM lessons can cover everything from timing to environment to authentic project-based learning. Whether you’ve never tried teaching a STEAM lesson or you’re a full-time makerspace educator, this webinar will have something inspiring for you!
