Design2Learn: Collaboration brings STEM alive in afterschool

Date Added: 

January 26, 2017

 

Design2Learn is our professional development program designed to boost student interest, engagement and academic performance in science.

How?

Design2Learn aims to spark student interest with an innovative combination of 1) collaboration between classroom teachers and community educators; 2) curricular bridging between the school day and after school; and 3) design-based learning to promote real-world connections and foster student engagement and achievement.

Classroom teachers and after-school educators form an “educator team” and spend a week together in the summer at the New York Hall of Science, learning design-based engineering projects that they can implement in the classroom to bring STEM subjects alive. They then meet together back at their schools to plan and team-teach projects that support the school day curriculum.

The Results

  • Seamless integration between school day curriculum and after-school enrichment
  • Teachers and after-school educators gain skills and confidence in teaching hands-on, design-based STEM
  • Students spend 100 more hours a year exploring STEM subjects
