This presentation is a how-to guide on the process of designing and running rigorous STEAM-based events to teach students across disciplines. While the examples will focus primarily on engaging at-risk high school students, the fundamental techniques and principles can be applied to reach learners of all grades and backgrounds! The session will include a variety of tools including: 1) Ready-to-use lessons tied to relevant standards, 2) Templates for creating your own STEAM Challenges, 3) Links and resources to aid in the process of making your classroom more STEAM-based, and 4) Interactive experiences putting you in the learner's seat. Come with questions, resources, ideas, and an open mind!
