Educators in Grades K-12
 
The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative at
Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.

Explore NASA STEAM free picture books integrated with STEM lessons and activities. We will discuss how stories can trigger curiosity which  is the first step in inquiry-based learning. How can educators  drive student  learning through the questions that they ask and discovering the answers on their own. Facilitate student growth using shareing  and reflecting strateggies. The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge but to create the possibilities for a child to invent and discover, to create [people] who are capable of doing new things. ~ Jean Piaget
