The New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA) is hosting the second in a series of “Are You I-STEAM Ready?” training programs, to help school districts enrich student learning in the areas of integrative science, technology, engineering, the arts and math. The program will take place on Thursday, Nov. 30, and will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (registration begins at 8:30 a.m.) at the NJSBA headquarters, 413 W. State Street, Trenton, NJ.
“Are You I-STEAM Ready?” Digging Deeper: Innovative and Entrepreneurial Learning Environments will begin to dig in deeper to help school leaders understand ways to transition away from the emphasis on students gathering information, to students being able to apply their understanding to new and novel situations.
This program, offered in collaboration with the U.S. Army, NJ Department of Education, the Rock and Roll Forever Foundation, and Arts Ed NJ, will include hands-on strategies that demonstrate effective actions that can be taken by districts to develop an entrepreneurial learning environment promoting imagination, creativity and real-world problem solving.
The session is free to attendees and includes a continental breakfast, lunch and program materials. Pre-registration is required and seats are limited. The “Are You I-STEAM Ready?” programs are sponsored by the Educational Leadership Foundation of New Jersey, and are offered at no cost to New Jersey school leaders.
This program is open to all N.J. public school leaders and district staff interested in learning more about I-STEAM education. School officials may register themselves online for this program.
