    "SPRING SESSION" of STANYS Professional Learning!

    Presenter: Erin Endreson  [Sponsored by Twig Science]

    There are many groups of historically underrepresented students not represented in STEM careers. This presentation examines some systemic causes of this underrepresentation and addresses what elementary educators, with the help of Twig Science, can do to increase the representation of females, people of color, and disabled students. Primarily focusing on the lack of role of models, encouragement in the early grades, and social stereotypes of how females and people of color see themselves as related to STEM. The presentation also looks at some hard data and historical context that will help reverse this trend for the future of our 21st-century economy.

    "SPRING SESSION" of STANYS Professional Learning!

    Presenter: Stacy Thibodeaux [Sponsored by Texas Instruments]

    Science content is best learning through hands-on, minds-on activities. In this pandemic era, it may be difficult for teachers to facilitate the same lessons as before. Come join this teacher as she shares her challenges and how she overcomes them with simulations for content delivery.

    "STANYS WINTER MINI-CONFERENCE EVENT"

    Presenter: Cindy Lilly [Sponsor: Lab-Aids]

    Through an online simulation, students analyze and interpret skeletal and embryological images to identify patterns of similarities and differences across species that look very different as mature animals. Students identify patterns of similarities throughout developmental time to infer evolutionary relationships not obvious in the mature animals. Learn about Lab-Aids’ new Remote Learning Activities and discover ideas for implementing hands-on curricula into an online platform. This activity provides an opportunity to assess student work related to MS-LS4-3.

    "STANYS WINTER MINI-CONFERENCE EVENT"

    Presenter: Dr. Sara English

    The focus of this workshop is on how to use Digital Interactive Notebooks as a formative assessment tool. Continuing to move forward in the integration of SEPs even in a pandemic can happen! Different interactive components of the notebook will be presented including general setup. Participants will learn how to use Jamboard as a progressive tool to track students’ models over time along with a modified version of QFT. Participants will leave with the knowledge of how to integrate this tool into their own classroom.

    "SPRING SESSION" of STANYS Professional Learning!

    Distinguished Speaker: Dr. Derek Muller - Veritasium

    Throughout the 20th century and into the 21st, each new communications technology has been heralded as the tool to "revolutionize education". Needless to say, none of these revolutions have come to fruition. As an education researcher, video creator and teacher I have explored many facets of teaching, learning and technology. My conclusions are: there are evidenced-based better and worse ways to make educational video and to use technology more broadly. But there is also a good reason why technology has not revolutionized education, because teachers are fundamentally much more than information delivery devices.

    Presenter: Tamica Stubbs  [Sponsored by Bio-Rad]

    Recently, the opioid epidemic has exploded in the United States. In this session, participants will learn how to genotype and statistically analyze fictional patient samples based on their rs1800497 DRD2/ANKK1 SNPs. Using evidence, they will predict addiction risks for opioid abuse and treatment as reflected in research. Participants will also learn to permeate opioid addiction science into concepts like population statistics, allelic frequencies, pedigrees, DNA function, cell communication, gene expression, biotechnology, and bioethics in their lessons
