"A Safety Minute" by Dr. Ken Roy - NSELA Safety Compliance Officer

Posted: April 25, 2019

"10 Ways to Keep Your Dust Collector Operating Safely:"  STEM Labs and physics labs dust producing equipment (table saws, miter saw, band saw, etc.) require dust collection system!  This is an OSHA standard requirement, given wood dust is an explosion hazard and also carcinogenic!  Check out how to make sure your dust collection system is working properly/safely.

Description:
A Framework for K-12 Science Education, the Next Generation Science Standards and state standards based on the Framework, describe science learning expectations in terms of three-dimensions - practices, core ideas, and crosscutting concepts. In this webinar, participants will be introduced to the science performance sequence of Gather, Reason, and Communicate Reasoning (GRC) and will develop a deeper understanding of the role of phenomena in engaging students in science performances. The GRC instructional sequence is an effective approach to facilitating three-dimensional student science performances. GRC provides a structure for instruction consistent with the research in how students learn science. Webinar participants will learn about a website with vetted GRC lessons for each K-12 grade-level NGSS standard. The webinar will help participants gain useful insights into the recently released NASEM report Science and Engineering Grades 6-12: Investigations and Design at the Center. This report provides a meaningful description of how to achieve classroom instruction consistent with the Framework.

Celebrate Earth Day with the City Nature Challenge!

Posted: April 18, 2019

There is nature all around us, even in our cities! Knowing which species live where helps scientists better protect urban wildlife—but they need your help! By participating in the upcoming City Nature Challenge, you can learn more about your local flora and fauna while helping scientists document the nature in your neighborhood. From April 26 - 29, over 150 cities on six continents are competing to make the most observations of wild plants and animals in their areas. All you need is the free mobile app iNaturalist to join in on the fun.
