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/.
