STEM Camp 2020 - June 22-24

STEM Camp is an opportunity for Arizona educators to develop their knowledge and skills in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. The iTeachELLs grant at Arizona State University focuses on preparing teachers to teach culturally and linguistically diverse learners. In addition to new STEM learning, educators will walk away with tools to support all learners in developing language and STEM content in tandem.

“Our purpose is to help our teacher candidates — or anyone who learns with us at our college — be prepared on some level to work with English language learners,” says Wendy Farr, director of the iTeachELLs grant.

The camp will include Keynote speakers, problem-based enhanced language learning development sessions with iTeachELLs instructional coaches, STEM sessions designed to be applied to K-12 classrooms, and field trips to local sites. Educators will walk away with a better understanding of how to incorporate STEM + language into their classroom.

What past participants have to say:

“I love the idea of using specific language practices throughout every subject and through project based learning. I needed the reminder that it is important for ALL students to be supported with language and taught specific language techniques.”

“Motivated/encouraged me to incorporate PBELL into our weekly (if not daily) routine. Also reinforced my general memory of strategies/practices to make all content accessible to my ELLs.”

“It empowered me. I was very motivated by the quality of the instruction and the diversity of speakers and topics.”

“STEM Camp was an amazing experience. This is my 11th year teaching and I had forgotten how it feels to be inspired. This experience helped to remind me why I do what I do.”
