10 am–1 pm

Transitioning a traditional classroom to one that is more question-centered does not require a total curriculum rewrite. Learn simple classroom strategies to turn existing lessons and activities into ones driven by student curiosity that give kids the opportunity to practice and develop their STEM skills.


Making Mummies

K–8 educators | Six-hour workshop | Six hours of Act 48 credit
Sat., Feb. 15, 2020
10 am–5 pm

Mummies of the World: The Exhibition brings mummies of all types to Carnegie Science Center. This workshop in BNY Mellon Fab Lab combines traditional STEM activities and competencies with digital fabrication technologies. Experiment with the basics of the mummification process used around the world. Then, explore Mummies of the World to learn more about these practices and how these mummies stay preserved. Finally, use the Fab Lab’s digital fabrication technology to create a laser-cut display to preserve your mummified creation. Share best practices with other educators while learning how to mix both cutting-edge and time-tested engineering technologies—such as computer-assisted design and manufacturing—in your classroom.
