Dakota State University students walking around campus

Preparation + opportunity = success

That's the DSU equation. We're a four-year university with nationally recognized programs, cutting-edge facilities, and the brightest thinkers. But we're also a tight-knit, inclusive community. Small class sizes mean hands-on training and individualized attention. All this with an affordable, public school price that's among the best values in the region.

DSU hold STEAM Camp for teachers

June 30, 2016

The 2016 DSU STEAM Camp for Teachers was held on Friday, June 3 on the Dakota State University campus in Madison, S.D. The one-day symposium provided attendees the chance to learn about hands-on activities to teach STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) in their classrooms.

The attendees had the opportunity to attend three different 90-minute sessions throughout the day. Each session focused on hands-on activities that can be taken back to the classroom and used with K-8 students.

The various sessions included topics to implement in their classrooms, such as accessibility for iPads and Windows devices; teamwork, engagement, and problem solving; immersive learning games; content literacy; Skype and Google Hangouts; programmable toys, such as Sphero, Dash and Dot and Parrot Drones;  video creation apps and video management tools; and building web sites with Weebly.

DSU’s STEAM Camp was supported by the National Science Foundation/EPSCoR Award and by the state of South Dakota.  For more information, go to http://dsusteamcamp.weebly.com/.
