Looking For Patterns in Species Diversity
From Science and Global Issues: Biology
Date: October 8, 2023  |  Time: 1:00-1:45p  |  Location: Fulton Room

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.


Sustaining the Commons
From Science and Global Issues: Biology
Date: October 8, 2023  |  Time: 2:00-2:45p  |  Location: Fulton Room

How common resources are used by individuals is a critical part of global sustainability. Setting parameters for common resource use can be a critical tool in sustainably managing a group’s resources. In this interactive workshop from the new Science and Global Issues: Biology program from SEPUP, you will engage with a model of how human choices affect the sustainability of a particular resource—the fish population of a fictitious lake—and the potential effects of different actions on individuals, the greater community, and the resource itself.

The Full Course: Modeling Antibiotic Resistance
From Middle School Issues and Science, Redesigned for the NGSS
Date: October 8, 2023  |  Time: 9:00-9:45a  |  Location: Pennsylvania Ballroom D

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.Come experience this hands-on interactive session that you can immediately utilize in your classroom!


Not Your Usual Elementary STEM Workshop: Make a Ride for One of Your Toys
From Tinkering Labs
Date: October 8, 2023  |  Time: 11:00-11:45a  |  Location: Pennsylvania Ballroom D

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 Tinkering, a STEM curriculum for grades K-5 that comes complete with equipment, lesson plans, assessments, embedded support for ELA, and is NGSS focused. Lesson samples and literature will be distributed.

Let us bring Lab-Aids to you!
