Targeting NGSS in a Planetarium
Karrie Berglund, Director of Education, Digitalis
Diana Yoder, Education Specialist
This highly interactive session will take place in a portable digital planetarium. We will explore activities targeting common NGSS such as moon phases, properties of light, solar system bodies, and more.
Each session will seat 20 people, first come, first seated. Please note that you will be sitting on the floor for approximately 25 minutes. The session will repeat three times.
The Science Table by Anatomage – Introducing Interactive Virtual Science Experiments to Your Classroom
David Skoff, Director of Science Table
Carlos Rojo, Science Content Manager
What if learning science was fun, interactive, and student-friendly? Step into a world with us where science is reimagined. In this workshop, we will provide an introduction to Science Table, an extensive library of virtual biology, chemistry, and physics experiments that offers realistic visuals and an interactive learning experience. Experiments presented on the 84” touchscreen instantly attract students to interact around it, making it easier to have group collaboration, peer to peer discussion, and exciting STEM learning. Teachers save time in lab setup and can easily reset experiments, plus have access to unique and costly experiments such as enzymatic reactions and membrane transport. With experiments aligned to middle school through introductory college levels, teachers and administrators in this session will gain an understanding of how to integrate the platform in their courses or schools to excite and engage the new generation of digitally-native students.
