Introduction to Ford STEAM Lab for Middle and High School Teachers – a 2018 Detroit Month of Design Happening

Saturday, September 15, 2018 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Ford STEAM Lab, a free digital curriculum, features a “hackathon” style process of introducing middle and early high school students to careers in STEM and Tech Entrepreneurship. In this happening, educators will work collaboratively to address an ongoing challenge — one related to expanding student learning opportunities — as a way to engage directly with the instructional resources. You’ll experience the curriculum first as a learner, then explore its flexibility, intended outcomes, resources needed for implementation and instructional supports available. Lunch served. Free, but pre-registration is required (see below). Seats are limited.

Two education-focused organizations have teamed up to create this dynamic happening: HFLI is a curriculum design and implementation partner to Ford Motor Company Fund in the ongoing development of Ford STEAM Lab. GVSU has a long standing tradition and commitment to providing quality education for students in grades K-12 and serves more than 35,000 students across the state.
