Staff and volunteers will be able to support youth to use a variety of documentation strategies during STEM.
As a result of ongoing, consistent professional development efforts, staff and volunteers will be able to:
Participants will document their learning with three activities: “Sink or Float,” “Paper Airplanes,” and “Amphibian/Fish Comparison”. They will also complete a self-reflection and set goals for their practice.View Guide
Learn new strategies for documenting STEM learning.View Guide
Participants will review strategies for having youth document their learning in order to use more STEM writing strategies.View Guide
Learn about the science process, classify objects, and observe the behavior of objects by testing whether items sink or float.Get Activity
Learn how you can use science journals to help youth document and reflect upon their STEM learning.View Webinar
Documenting learning can be a burden at times, especially in an active out-of-school-time setting where children are coming and going throughout the program time. Yet showing evidence of learning may be the lifeline to a program’s funding and survival. In this module, review practical examples of the “why,” “what,” and “how” of STEM processes documentation.Learn More
