Initiated at the district level, science specialists and teachers are collaborating with T4T to prepare for NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards) and energize classroom learning with hands-on discovery and engineering. Pilot projects are currently underway in about 25 LAUSD high schools, and multiple elementary & middle schools. Thanks to a new partnership with LAUSD School [...]
Interdisciplinary Design Based Learning = Science + Technology + Engineering + Math + Language Arts How do we facilitate next generation thinking? We are proposing a model that integrates science, math, and language arts through in-depth projects, where technology, engineering, art and even social studies can be additional layers of investigation and interconnected learning.
T4T is collaborating with Lawndale Elementary School District on multiple projects to inspire students to reduce, reuse, recycle & re-engineer. In partnership with Lawndale’s RAP (Realizing Amazing Potential) before & after school program, students will be exploring NASA’s Beginning Engineering Science and Technology curriculum with T4T materials district wide this summer. Thanks to Republic Services [...]
