This workshop will prepare teachers to avoid a zombie apocalypse in their classrooms! Teachers will learn how to empower students to solve problems through project-based experiences with several zombie-themed scenarios. By using engaging story lines, teachers can inspire their students to solve problems through the creation of projects of their own design.
Based on the popular STEM Behind Hollywood program, these hands-on project-based activities incorporate both simulations and sensor-based data collection and analysis. Collaboration and argumentation strategies will be discussed and practiced as teacher teams attempt to figure out which STEM careers are needed to stop a zombie pandemic! Developing a strong understanding of the underlying math and science behind disease spread will reveal clues. Doing some testing on a Jello® zombie brain to determine the cause of the zombie-like symptoms may reveal additional clues. Will teachers work together to stop the outbreak? Or will they be overrun by the student zombie horde? Learning and applying the relevant math and science concepts may just help save the human race — and students’ interest in STEM!
**Overview **
