Dare to Be a Force of Nature!
ABOUT THIS EVENT
Take part in the AMOS “Dare to be a Force of Nature” Program, a special series of 3 mini-programs this April! While your child will be having hands-on STEM lab fun, embedded in each activity are main components of NOAA's Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience model. See below for more.
Week 1: “Students focus on a driving question that guides their inquiry and investigations of a defined issue and leads to stewardship actions.”
Week 2: “While developing supporting questions, students use their senses to make first-hand observations, gain experience using equipment or technology to collect data or measurements, and conduct experiments necessary to answer their supporting questions and inform student stewardship actions."
Week 3: “Students identify and implement a stewardship action as a solution that directly addresses the defined issue or phenomenon within their school, town, neighborhood, or community. Students are actively engaged and, to the extent possible, drive the decision-making, planning, and implementation of the stewardship action.”
AMOS will engage our audience each week through an engaging demonstration in the STEM Lab (recorded online to accomodate those who can not make it in person to the museum). AMOS will provide supply kits to those interested, at no cost, to encourage stewardship with the Week 3 objective. Call to request your kit: (828) 254-7162
