Invitation from Tufts


Received the following which may be of interest to many of our readers:


The Tufts Center for Engineering Education and Outreach (CEEO) invites you to the 5th annual LEGO Engineering Symposium May 24-26, 2011 at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, USA.
The LEGO Engineering Symposium aims to bring together educators and other stakeholders that want to explore using LEGO MINDSTORMS to teach STEM concepts. This year's symposium's theme is Pushing the Envelope of STEM Learning.

Speakers will include researchers in science & engineering education, leading K-12 teachers, maverick Mindstorms users, and other folks pushing the boundaries of technologies for supporting STEM education.
We will be offering six development labs this year:
I. Seeing the Science/Engineering in Children's Thinking.
II. Integrating Engineering & Literacy.
III. SAM (Stop Action Movie Making) - Tools for Children to Create Representations of their Ideas.
IV. Labview Education Edition - The Next Generation of Programming.
V. Supporting the Development of Engineering Design Skills in K-12.
VI. Physics Glasses: Augmented Reality and Other Fun Things with Image Analysis
Development labs are an opportunity for participants to learn, discuss, and develop ideas. They are different than traditional workshops in that participants spend time discussing and developing ideas that can inform classroom practice as well as product development. This year we are asking participants to pre-select the development labs they wish to participate in so that we can better plan materials and resources. All development labs will share an overview of their activities and findings on the final day of the conference.
Registration is now Open! Space is limited to 100 participants - so register early.
Visit
for more information and registration.
We hope to see you there!
- Faculty, Staff and Students of CEEO

I highly recommend the Symposium. I also posted a summary of my experiences at last year's event on my blog...
