Not Your Usual Elementary STEM Workshop: Make a Ride For One of Your Toys
From Tinkering Labs, Presented by Lab-Aids for K-5
This hands-on workshop challenges participants to make a vehicle to move a toy or other small object using motors, wheels, wires, and other equipment. This activity is one of 10 engineering design challenges in the Electric Motors Catalyst, a STEM curriculum for grades K-5 that comes complete with equipment, lesson plans, assessments, embedded support for ELA, and is NGSS focused. The program is distributed by Lab-Aids. Lesson samples and literature will be distributed.

Biology: Looking for Patterns in Species Diversity
From High School Global Issues in Science: Biology, Redesigned for the NGSS
Look for patterns in species diversity in coral reef ecosystems and other animals to determine cause and effect relationships and understand how ecosystem interactions affect patterns of biological diversity.

3E Evolution: The Full Course: Modeling Antibiotic Resistance
From Middle School Issues and Science, Redesigned for the NGSS
Students use a model to explore the cause-and-effect relationship between inappropriate use of antibiotics and the phenomenon of the evolution of antibiotic resistance. As they use the model, students use mathematical representations to support their analysis of patterns and trends in the results and to develop explanations for how and why the population of bacteria is changing.
