"PBS LearningMedia™ is launching a new STEM initiative, "Teaching NGSS Engineering Design Through Media." This collection offers 40 media-rich resources to help you bring engineering alive for your students. Produced by WGBH through funding from Raytheon, the project includes resources from such WGBH series as FETCH!, Design Squad and NOVA, and highlights the science and engineering practices of communicating ideas, defining problems, and planning and carrying out investigations. The collection also draws from the expertise of Prof. Martha Cyr of Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Dr. Cyr, the presenter, will help us flush out the new engineering standards as part of NGSS, and show how the new collection of resources on PBS LearningMedia can support your instruction. Please join us for this timely and very content-rich webinar. pbslearningmedia.org is a free service co-produced by PBS and WGBH Education."
There are many opportunities to weave math/numeracy instruction into these resources. If you can't view this webinar on such short notice, Learning Media says to register anyway, and it will then be possible to view the webinar at a later date.
