Traveling STEAM Workshops

Not every teacher can attend the NV STEAM Conference, but every teacher should have access to the highest quality professional development in STEAM education. To ensure teachers from across the state have equal access, in 2020 the Museum will be delivering the STEAM Workshops to teachers throughout Nevada, specifically focusing on bringing this content to schools in rural communities.

All workshops are hands-on and specifically integrate the arts into STEM lessons.  All lessons are aligned with the Nevada Academic Content Standards, represent the best STEAM teaching in the state, and support larger workforce development goals in Nevada.  These workshops have been endorsed by the Nevada Department of Education, the Governors Office of Science, Innovation, and Technology (OSIT), the Nevada STEM Council, and the NV STEAM Committee.  Together, we believe that integrating the arts into STEM is the best way to ensure students enter the workforce prepared to drive Nevada’s Innovation Economy across all industries.

Available workshops will include:

Art in Motion: Action Painting from Abstract Impressionism to Robotics
