  • Dr. Lewis to Engage Students with iDigFossils

    Dr. Elizabeth Lewis was one of 30 teachers from across the country selected to participate in four days of professional development at the University of Florida as part of the project, “iDigFossils: Engaging K-12 Students in Integrated STEM via 3D Digitization, Printing, and Paleontology.”
     
    The project, which is funded by the National Science Foundation, in collaboration with the Florida Museum of Natural History, aims to expand and extend our understanding of integrated STEM learning by designing and testing a model for K-12 STEM engagement using a highly relevant but unexplored educational pathway to K-12 STEM – paleontology.

    Country Day students in grades 1-4 will develop scientific habits of mind (e.g., curiosity, informed skepticism), employ scientific and engineering practices (e.g., developing and using models, analyzing and interpreting data), engage with the concepts that bridge disciplinary boundaries (e.g., patterns, scale, change), and explore relevant disciplinary core ideas in physical and life sciences. While solving paleontology-focused problems, K-12 students involved in this project will be developing deep understandings of evolution, biodiversity, and climate change.

    Let's get started!
