Join us to discover how to incorporate 3D learning through STEM content, science and engineering practices, and crosscutting concepts to explain real-world phenomenon or solve authentic problems.Through a variety of hands-on activities and strategies we hope to motivate, encourage, and support K - 5 teachers who want to explore ways of changing how they teach outdoors.
