Join us for a fun, interactive workshop designed for primary teachers. Discover ways to help students make sense of wind and its renewable capabilities. Using Next Generation Science and Engineering Practices, navigate the new Arizona Science Standards and apply them through the inquiry of wind.

Special thank you to the Thomas R. Brown Family Foundation for supporting the STEMAZing Teacher Leader Program (STLP). STLP allows us to work with incredible teacher leaders who have designed and will facilitate STEMAZing Workshops like this one.
This workshop is part of the STEMAZing Workshop Series. The STEMAZing Project’s philosophy on teacher professional development is simple: It must be hands-on and engaging – putting the educators in the seat of the students to experience STEM lessons firsthand. It must provide the educators with the equipment and supplies they need to implement the lessons and activities in their classrooms the next day if they choose. It must be facilitated by master educators who have themselves been in the classroom.
