NCCAT presents - Using STEM to Enhance Literacy

Apply now to be part of "Using STEM to Enhance Literacy" May 17-20 in Cullowhee.
The world of STEM—science, technology, engineering, and math—provides a rich environment that motivates children to want to learn more. Children often prefer reading about spiders and dinosaurs to fictional characters. STEM activities help students build vocabulary, incorporate problem-solving skills, and analyze complex text with real-world applications.
 
Maximize classroom time by integrating literacy with the natural connections of STEM disciplines. Experience lessons that give students a desire to read, promote problem solving, and model strategies to cultivate reading comprehension. 
 
Join us as we make messes, break things, and create minds-on STEM learning environments.
