Fall Teacher Workshop

CONNECTING STEM TO NW TRIBAL ART & CULTURE, 18+ YRS

Friday, October 25, 5-8:30pm & Saturday, October 26, 9am-5pm

Fee: $75

Instructor: Mari Atkinson

This interactive workshop will explore cultural aspects of the NW Coast Native Americans. Participants will learn how resources were utilized within their environment and attain ideas for integrating the required OSPI tribal sovereignty curriculum into other content areas. Participants will gain an understanding of NW Coast Natives as the "first scientists," and discover their use of technology, engineering and mathematics, all within the notable features of their visual art.

Through visual art processes, ideas will be shared to engage students' learning and spark imagination with innovative hands-on projects that support students' learning. In an interactive manner, STEM - in tandem with Art - will guide participants to apply creative skills they already possess. This course does meet the STEM requirement for certification. Assessment strategies will be discussed and all activities are designed to be class-time efficient.
