Hour of Innovation: Material Science Lesson Plans and Guest Presentations from Steelcase

In this Hour of Innovation session, we will review Inventionland Institute created lesson plans focusing on material science! Our first lesson plan gets students hands-on while they learn about different types and uses of plastics. Our second lesson plan will get students thinking critically about materials. Participants will receive these lesson plans in an email after the event.

 

In the second half of the hour, we will be joined by our guest speakers from Steelcase, Aileen Strickland McGee and Kathy Waterman.

We are living in an unprecedented time.  Schools are closed around the world causing educators and students to adjust to new realities of teaching and learning online. Our guest speakers from Steelcase will speak to what they have been learning about this shift to remote + online learning, what this might mean for the near future of education, and share some ideas schools might consider as they redesign their learning spaces in a post-COVID environment.
