The LEGO Engineering Symposium aims to bring together educators that want to explore using LEGO MINDSTORMS to teach STEM concepts. This year's symposium's theme is Pushing the Envelope of STEM Learning.
Speakers will include researchers in science education, leading K-12 teachers, maverick Mindstorms users, and other folks pushing the boundaries of technologies for supporting STEM education.
We will be offering six development labs this year:
I. Seeing the Science/Engineering in Children's Thinking.
II. Integrating Engineering & Literacy.
III. SAM (Stop Action Movie Making) - Tools for Children to Create Representations of their Ideas.
IV. Labview Education Edition - The Next Generation of Programming.
V. Supporting the Development of Engineering Design Skills K-12.
VI. Physics Glasses: Augmented Reality and Other Fun Things with Image Analysis
Development labs are an opportunity for participants to learn, discuss, and develop ideas. They are different than traditional workshops in that participants spend time discussing and developing ideas that can inform classroom practice as well as product development. This year we are asking participants to pre-select the development labs they wish to participate in so that we can better plan materials and resources. All development labs will share an overview of their activities and findings on the final day of the conference.
Registration is now Open! Space is limited to 100 participants - so register early.
