Abstract: With the demands of flexible learning (delivering instruction in multiple modalities) during the COVID-19 pandemic, K-12 educators, and teacher educators have expressed a need for STEM instructional activities that support their learners, especially in online and remote environments. During this interactive workshop, designed for teacher educators, participants will engage in several online interactive STEM activities that can be immediately introduced to pre-service and in-service educators. Some of the activities can be applied across all disciplinary content areas. Attendees of the workshop will receive access to digital plans and resources.


Learner Objectives: The learner will be able to identify new at least one STEM-based online interactive activities. The learner will discuss with others ideas related to STEM-based online activities. Workshop Objectives: Introduce interactive online activities that can transfer to various learning contexts. Engage learners in at least one of the activities. Share digital tools, links, and other resources
